My Crazy, Sampler, Reversible Quilt

This is a Crazy, Sampler, Reversible Quilt that I made for my swing on our front porch.  I have been working on and off on this while doing other projects. I took my time and did one block at a time to mix match the material.  I had other projects that were more important to do.  But I finally got it finished.  This quilt was made with bright Moda Fat Quarters that I purchased at Hancock's in Paducah.

I tried to pick different blocks, ones that I never did before, also some of my favorites, plus they had do look good together.  I added plain dark blue fabric here and there in the blocks to set them off.

I even mixed up the boarder around the blocks and placed them on a slant, then put a white sashing.


I machine quilted 1/4 inch around parts of each block to set them off and then put a fancier stitch in the boarder.  For the backing I used all my large scraps from the front that were left over.  So it actually looks good either way.

Looks good on my swing, to me adds that finishing touch.  The finished size is 50" X 50", to me, the perfect lap quilt for when the weather gets cooler.  My hubby and I will still be able to swing. 

Happy Quilting......Have a Great Day!!
