CRAZY 9 PATCH QAYG - Quick Update

The Crazy-Beasty is almost finished! I'm not sure, but I think it has been in-process for about 8 years! Yikes. Talk about a UFO!  All four borders are now attached - a better picture will follow when I get the binding on.

It might take awhile to decide on the binding fabric. . . more pictures will follow in another post showing the process of putting this lap quilt together.  It is a good technique. I love that it is easier to baste, quilt and complete than more traditional methods. I don't do every quilt this way, but it is a nice technique to have in one's bag of tricks.

I love the colours in this quilt and obviously it is already a cosy place to snuggle. What a sweetie.
QAYG? I'm intrigued and my ears are perked for this technique, my bag isn't that full :D

I want to try the Cotton Theory method sometime. It would help if I bought a book. LOL Great job!

I'm intrigued by the technique. I've seen a few, but many of them seem like just as much work, so I can't wait to know more.
