Quilt Qwazy Queens

Hi Everyone! First I am sew sorry, my day was supposed to be yesterday.  I was on vacation in the Tennessee mountains and tried to post for over an hour.  I think there was a really slow internet connection at the hotel.  It kept crashing. Now, I am back to civilization.  Time to go back to work too whaaaa. Thanks SO MUCH to Marian at Seamstobesew  for continuing to be our host and bringing us all together.


During this blog hop, the Fat Quarter Shop is giving everyone who purchases something at their shop at 10% discount.When you check out, just use the coupon code of:

seamstobe316
It is not good on gift certificates, so if you happen to win one of the $25.00 gift certificates, the 10% off will not be given. The coupon is good for 1 purchase for each customer.


When I saw the name of this hop you know I "had" to join.  Heck, I AM "Kwilt Krazy".  I have been quilting for about 4 years. I had a machine that my Mom bought me many years ago.  I tried to sew not knowing what in the world I was doing and kept getting frustrated so I gave up and then it just sat and collected dust.  One day a co-worker was showing me all of her crafty projects and some of them involved sewing.  She inspired me to pull out that old dusty thing and I was determined to learn all about it. I decided to take a quilt class and then I was hooked. I still can't believe all the times, in the beginning that I would look through magazines wishing I could make those beautiful quilts.  Now, I can look through and think "oh I could do that" : )  
Here is a little quilt tour:

My very first quilt. I remember I had no clue how to pick out fabric so I had a lady at the shop pick them out for me.

This is my second quilt.  A lovely lady and now a very dear friend taught me all I know about quilting.  She taught a group of us twice a month and I quilted with them for 2 years.  

Next I decided to join Quilts for Kids.  I love making quilts to give to those in need.  It makes it sew much more worth it. Below is another that I made for orphaned children in Africa.


Here are a couple of my favorite quilts.
Batman for one of my twin granddaughters
and
below is a quilt that was entered into a quilt guild contest.  The theme was "favorite movies"
Grease!!!
See, I am getting more and more obsessed...Krazy....as I learn more and more.  Sometimes Krazy is a good thing.  I can't believe that I have now made a design that was recently in Quiltmaker 100 blocks.  If interested check out my previous post to see that block design. Lastly I want to show you this sampler quilt that I designed just for this hop.  Since I started my blog I have had this image in my mind of a lady all flustered and Krazy with quilt blocks all around.  LOL...my vision is now a reality.  
 Here are some close up shots of some of the blocks. Now I need a photography class ha ha.
Bear Claw

Rail Fence

Flower Basket


I didn't get my binding finished but I am sew glad I was invited to share this with you.
