Crazy Quilt Progress
This has been such a fun quilt to make! I am really enjoying the colors as I have been piecing the blocks together. I chose a nice bright white to show off the colors in this quilt and I love how they pop. Don't worry, the bottom right corner of the quilt is not as curvy as it looks in this picture. It was hanging inward slightly creating a nice wavy looking outside edge :)
I will use the same white as the sashing to create a border for this quilt as well. I think it will be a nice solid frame since there is so much going on in this quilt. I have not yet decided what I will bind this with. It will have to be a surprise for everyone. I do not have a design wall in this room so I improvised and pinned the corners to the back of two computer chairs to take a picture. Who says computer chairs are not versatile?!?! :)
And where you might ask is this quilt headed? Well DD2 had a change of heart and it will go for the school fundraiser after all :)
