Born on the 5th of July Born on the 5th of July
By: Sandi, Minnesota, USA

I began this piece in 2006 in patriotic colors for my son, born July 5, 1976. I only worked on it when I met with my “Tuesday Crazies” friends. I was determined to finish by Election Day, 2008, and I did. I embroidered Obama’s name that night but if McCain had won, his name would be on the piece.

Crazy Pieced Quilt Crazy Pieced Quilt
By: Diane B, Florida, USA

I used all my left over orphan blocks cut them up and pieced with strips and squares to make this quilt. It was made during a difficult time in my life and was good therapy for me. This is my version of a crazy quilt as at the time, I thought I was going crazy.

I love this jacket I love this jacket
By: Liesbeth Wessels, Netherlands

I made this jacket from all kinds of blue colours. I love to wear it. This is the way I could assemble my own fabric. It is sewn with several stitches.

The pattern is from a sewing magazine in the Netherlands, the collar is very special .

Schoonover's Heirloom Quilt Schoonover’s Heirloom Quilt
By: Cheryl Hartzog, Florida, USA

I wanted a crazy quilt at Mom’s to drape over the sofa, so we all started some 8″ blocks a few years ago. Mom & I ended up doing most of the handwork, emboridery and ribbon work, we finished it and entered it in a quilt show, we won 1st place, that show was based on crazy quilts.

She's Crazy in the Attic She’s Crazy in the Attic
By: Kathy, Virginia, USA

In the process of making a apple core quilt, I had these little pieces I couldn’t stand to throw away. I pieced them on 4 inch fabric backing. I then placed them in Attic windows. To make them stand out more I used black piping around each block. It is quilted by machine.

    I was struck this morning, while reading the quilts’ stories, that half of this show and tell is the quilt and half the story of lives. What a connection this contest makes between quilters. I loved the setting ideas on several, esp., the desire to try quilt as you go. Thank you all for sharing. You are precious.
