Crazy Quilting Friday

I am back at making some darker blocks as I want to make a lap quilt and so far I don't have enough of this shade to do that .As you can see I have yet to add any embellishment,kind of ran out of time , it always seems to get away from me ;-)
I did however finish off the teacup crazy patch runner and I am really pleased with the results , the four blocks are a perfect size and as you can see it fits the hutch just so , will I leave it there , maybe not , you see I am a country girl at heart and this seems just a little too victorian for me , now I absolutely love the Victorian look but it looks out of place in my house so it may have to find a new home in the future . Now it may look better on a bedroom dresser , haven't tried that out yet .
It is a lovely sunny but very cold day here , -25C this morning with the wind chill , but at least the sun is around which makes it seem warm even if it isn't . Hope your day is filled with sunshine or at least all good things . Thanks for stopping by .
Hugs Sheila

  1. I so love the runner and your new block. Maybe I too will make a runner if I can whip up a few extra blocks.

  2. Oh that new block is really pretty and crazy! LOL I need to do some cray quilting. I know I keep saying that, but I just have so many things in the fire right at this point. I love the look of crazy quilts though at quilt shows. I usually go to those first. So intriguing.

    Your runner is just gorgeous and it looks great on that awesome hutch of yours. I love that too!

    You enjoy your weekend, friend.

    Hugs,
    Sue

  3. Lovely; as usual Sheila....The runner looks so nice on the hutch...A question; do you quilt or tie your crazy quilts? I have been going back and forth with that.Even though I haven't started mine yet....with all the embellishments on one; was curious which would work the best.....

  4. Your runner and new block is/are lovely. enjoy your weekend - I think the temperature here is to be just below 30c for a couple of days only - then the heat is probably back! Some of your cool would be lovely!

  5. Another lovely block, Sheila. I don't think you've made a single one that I haven't liked! And the teacup runner turned out just perfect. It does look nice on your hutch (which I LOVE), but I bet it would look just as pretty in a bedroom!

    Enjoy that sunshine!

    XOXO,

  9. Your green dresser is a treasure. Everything looks so good on it. I really look forward to seeing what you have made for Crazy Quilting Friday. I always look closely to see if we have any of the same fabrics in our stashes. Hope you have a wonderful weekend.
