First time in a crazy quilt show

I am excited to be a part of the Crazy Quilts are Quilts Too show over at Pigtales and Quilts.  I have never been part of an online show before so this is a totally new experience for me.

I come from a quilting family, both of my grandmothers and my mother made quilts.  I am lucky to have quilts from each of them. I made my first quilt when I was sixteen and have been quilting ever since. 

A few years ago I made each of my daughters a crazy quilt using corduroy, mach suede and upholstery fabrics in earth tones. I used the herringbone stitch on all of the seams. I thought I was a crazy quilter until I found the Yahoo crazy quilting groups. Now I know I have lots to learn.

I have been working on a quilt for my daughter's wedding, which was almost three years ago. I used vintage linens, and hankies. I have tried to do more interesting seam treatments on it but I still haven't ventured into the squares yet. 

I made my daughter some cq pillows for Christmas.  I especially enjooyed embrodering on the fabric.

Here are a few of my smaller quilting projects.


  1. I love your quilts, they are colorful and so much fun! I can't wait to see what you're next project will be.

  2. Your crazy quilting is very clean and beautiful looking. Thank you for sharing them.

  3. I love your unique treatment of the building blocks and I also love your tree quilt. And now you are learning crazy quilting too. You are going to have so much fun.

  4. Beautiful projects Linda! I have really enjoyed looking at them all! Good luck in the quilt show!

  5. Nice quilts; love the bug jars. I've always said that I'd make one of those for my grandsons...and just never seem to have the time/motivation! Inspiring.
