YUP! The mattress seaming took TWO DEDICATED DAYS…I mean [B][I][COLOR=teal]dedicated![/COLOR][/I][/B]
I have another CRAZY QUILT planned for Celeste, my other granddaughter. However…the seaming for Laila’s crazy quilt drove me so crazy that I am going to do something different for Celeste’s quilt.
I am going to cast on 210 stitches…35 stitches from each of 6 different skeins…and work back and forth off those 6 skeins til the squares created reach 8" in height…then I will swap out those 6 skeins for 6 different skeins…and so forth…til the quilt is 6 squares wide by 8 squares tall…48 squares in all.
I developed a master plan using an Excel Spreadsheet. I weighed all my Stash skeins. I know that each 8"x8" square takes about 25 g.
So I now know how many squares each Stash skein will give me…and by that I can plan out a Crazy Quilt.
I will follow that plan as best I can.
This style of Crazy Quilt will eliminate the seaming! It will require “color block” techniques…but…that is easy compared to seaming!
Thanks for all your generous words! I love this Crazy Quilt better than any I have made in the past. I just love the saturated primary colors. Such HAPPY COLORS!
This colorful quilt is for my 4 year old granddaughter. My DH and I have 10 grandchildren…8 girls and 2 boys. I have knit a million stitches for these babies over the years!!!
