I made Dream Like Crazy in response to a Tri-Guild challenge to make a crazy quilt. Unfortunately, I missed the meeting where it would have competed against other crazy quilts so you are the first to see this quilt.
As you know, I have been sorting scraps. This quilt allowed me to use up some of my scraps of African fabrics. (I am still sorting scraps, by the way). I love scrap quilts and plan to make several this year.
One of the best things about a crazy quilt is that you can continue to add to it. Although this quilt is heavily embellished with buttons, crystals, words, etc., I am continuing to add to it. It is somewhat autobiographical, but I guess all of my quilts are in a sense.
I named it Dream Like Crazy because I happened to be working on it on Martin Luther King Day.
