The Cranky Quilt

Share the love!

The Cranky Quilt is one of the funnest quilts I have designed– as well as one of the first larger….and block or row by row quilt along.

It features 7 rows that vary in style and size.

The idea was to take the typical blocks and make them so –the points didn’t matter, rules were kind of tossed to the wind and you could sew, sew,sew without getting all cranky about it being perfect.

This quilt was done in 2 different quilt groups, plus here online.

There are a lot of Cranky Quilts out there- I love that!

For some it was kind of hard. Hard to step away from the regular rules and go with the flow and not unpick…and be totally ok with the result.

In the end- the result was fantastic!  Every single quilt was perfect in it’s own way and you could really see that the process was really enjoyed.

After a bit of reviewing, the pattern for the cranky quilt has been updated and is now in one file.
