Crazy Quit in Pink and Blue

I first started crazy quilting many years ago when a parent brought in some examples of work that she had been doing. I immediately fell in love with the colors and the textures, so I bought a book and started playing. I already had tons of fabric scraps to use and knew many embroidery stitches. I loved the silky look of the perle cotton thread.

My first project was a pink and blue vest. It had bits of all kinds of fabrics that I had worn through the years. I used to wear it with a blue chambray skirt and it truly was a cute and clever style. (I do wish that this type of floral fabric wasn't considered so frumpy now!)

Aren't these vintage flowery white buttons pretty??
