Hmmm, I can't think of this one bloc of "crazy quilting" without being reminded of my friend "Crazy Ann" who calls herself that because she likes crazy quilts. Also thinking I should open my internet Pandora and listen to Patsy Cline!

At any rate, this is the first time I've ever really done any crazy quilting. I'm more of a structured kind of gal. But I also don't like to waste ANYTHING. All I had left after this bit of piecing on the left were a few pieces of the 30s reproduction fabric -- the largest piece being about 1/2 x 1 1/2 inches. So I guess I didn't waste much.

The 30s repro fabric was from this baby quilt that I made a few years ago.

Of course, if you've been reading my blog lately, you know that I'm making blocs for daughter Anna Maria's Rainbow Around the Block project to benefit victims of the May Nashville flooding.

These are a few other blocs I've whipped out in the last couple days -- mostly starting with leftover blocs or strips from other quilts.

Those of you who sent me fabric for our "light / dark" fabric exchange a couple years ago might recognize your fabrics in most of these blocs.

Now, before I can get on to any other sewing, I MUST figure out just how I'm going to use the fabric pieces sitting on my cutting table. Then there's a bag full of more half-sqaure-triangles to use up. Oh, my--I've got my work cut out for me!

But it might just be time to go cook some pasta to put under the sauce that's been simmering on the stove all afternoon -- Yep, from our garden tomatoes.
Ah, and then a quiet evening back to the knitting needles and that sweater for my grandson.
