Crazy Quilt

I have a lovely DIY project for you today, and another to add to my Summer holiday to-do-with-Alice list! It’s a crazy , but easy (<-- I like), quilt from Abbyholverson on Instructables

I think it’s a brilliant idea for a memory quilt, using up your baby and maybe maternity clothes. Do a good enough job and you could keep it for the grandkids!

Supplies

You start with one irregular, straight-edged shape. Then add 2” strips around it, one by one. So instead of the usual square based quilt, you get an irregular pattern, one which I would imagine is easier to maintain!

Layers

And how pretty it is! Add buttons or beads or embroidery, or leave it in its natural form – it’s equally gorgeous.

You could use this to make a quilted blanket, or a throw, or a cushion cover, or a wall-hanging – the list goes on! Head over to Instructables for the full details. Please share if you have a go!

    This quilt is cute! You’re going to end up having a very busy summer if you want to make everything you find! :D I fully expect you to make something though and put it on the blog… just so you know ;)
