Crazy Stars

Happy Memorable Monday!  I really like Mondays.  They are the beginning of a new start.  Everything is possible on Monday.  My diet is attainable, my house is cleanable, and just about everything seems doable.  Yes, I like Mondays:)

For today’s Memorable Monday, I want to share my beautiful Crazy Stars quilt.  I just love this beauty.  It’s funny because when I first started sewing it I thought it was going to be too busy or too loud.   But no way, it is amazingly fun and beautiful.  It is not at all too busy or loud.  I just want to look at it and admire it all of the time.

imageA few years ago, a good friend and I went up to the Buggy Barn quilt show in Reardan, Washington.   It was so much fun!   I just wanted to make everything.  The quilts were hanging on the fences and everything was just so country.  It was an experience I will never forget.  I am so glad we went when we did because the next year they  closed the shop .image
When they announced they were closing, my friend and I decided to each make this Crazy Stars Quilt in honor of our trip and the fun that we had there.

I don’t know how many of you have ever made a Buggy Barn quilt before, but let me tell you, they are different, and wow! are they fun!  I have made several.  The technique is type of stack, cut, rearrange and sew technique.  It is kind of like paper piecing without the paper.  If you ever get the itch to make one, I highly recommend it.  Their books are still available. Yea!:)

My Crazy Stars quilt used this stacked assembly for the “crazy” stars, but the rest of the quilt was made with traditional pieced flying geese, and let me tell you, that was a job!  There were almost a thousand flying geese in this quilt!  I felt like the chains were never going to stop.  But they did and how beautiful those geese turned out:) image

Thanks for stopping by–Tracy:)image
