crazy quilt

this is hannah's quilt in progress. my mom made me a gorgeous crazy quilt a few years ago, and ever since i've wanted to make one for my daughter. i don't have a lot of fabric, so obviously this project is ideal. i'm using some of her old clothes, and mine, as well as a small swatch given to me by one of my sisters. that piece was the catalyst for this project because it looks like a tiny crazy quilt (it's in the very center).
i had hannah draw some of her people in some of the squares, and i embroidered them with black (age 2 1/2). my goal is to have it fit a twin sized bed by the time she grows out of her converted crib (which is probably soon!) current size: 28" x 24"

  1. I am going to love to watch this quilt evolve. I love how a quilt tells the story of the recipient, and of the quilt-maker. This is beautiful and I love the concept.
