Crazy Quilt Sampler

Quilt Pattern/Name:  Crazy Quilt Sampler

Quilt Size:  52 inches by 48 inches

Quilt Maker:  pieced by Ann Tarabini

Quilt Completion Date:  finished in 2015

Quilt Pattern:  You can find a number of free tutorials for this quilt under BEGINNER BASICS – Other Techniques – Crazy or Free Form Quilting.

Extra Information:  This quilt is a backdrop for a three hour class that I teach on crazy quilting/free form quilting.  Each block in this quilt is used to show some of the different techniques.

The color combination in this quilt came about as I tried to use up some scraps.  I started using solid strips and then pulled trims from another scrap pile.  I had some plaids nearby that made it into the quilt along with a Provence border print, batik strips for the frames and a favorite Kaffe print.  It’s very eclectic but works well as a teaching tool.  The back of the quilt looks like I pieced sections of jeans but it is actually a photo of patchwork printed on the fabric.

I machine quilted around the blocks and then I used yarn to tie the sashing/borders.
