A Crazy Quilt Heart

This fall when I hosted the Victorian Stitchery Retreat, I met Allie Aller for the first time. We both admire Carole Sample's and her work and we were inspired by the lecture she gave. We then decided to make a challenge! We would use the same pattern and see the different results we would each get. Our styles are so different!

It was an interesting piecing experience that I really enjoyed!

I have started to do the embellishing and hope to have it done in a couple of days. I would invite you to check out Allie's blog to see what she has done with the same pattern, it is amazing!

Please note:  This is a pattern by Carole Samples and used by permission!  Please don't reproduce this pattern without permission...Thank you!

Talk to you later,


  1. It will be interesting to follow you both ;)

  2. I live in the UK and have just discovered crazy quilting. Have just come across your blog and the lovely work that you do. Tried looking for books by after your comments but they seem to be very expensive here £175 +, is this the normal price for her books do you know?
