Aurora Quilt Show- Crazy Quilts!

Crazy About Aurora was this years theme for my favorite quilt show and I've never seen so many in one place before!!

 This one was made in the 40's and the quilting is done by machine and so fun to see!
 A big jumble of craziness fun!!
 I thought the lower left block was adorable. "Let me just make this last blocks with strips!"
Enjoy the show!

 Oh that fabric on the left! And that stitching!!! WOW!

I thought the cross stitch blocks were an interesting addition.

Let's have a great week!


  1. At first glance I thought those cross-stitch blocks were pieces salvaged from an old jacquard coverlet. Amazing stitchery in these. I always love your posts about the Aurora Quilt Show, especially now that we're not in Oregon. Have you ever been to the Zion Mennonite Church's annual show? It is generally late in February each year, another amazing with lots of antique and beautifully made quilts as well as a few more modern-day ones.

  2. Thank you for posting pictures from the Aurora show. The scrap quilt looks so inviting to cuddle up with. The crazy quilt is pretty amazing...a great way to start the week, viewing these

  3. Thanks for letting us have a look too! The first one has such fun colors and prints!

  4. Lori,
    The big question is:
    Are you going to make one??
    Even a small one?

  5. Beautiful rugs and I do like the first scrappy ones, fun to use up scraps like that.


  6. When old is new and new is old could describe the first quilt. Except for the fabric, it makes me think of modern "slab" blocks. Thanks for sharing these great quilts, Lori.

  7. The embroidered classic crazies have amazing and beautiful embroidery. But somehow it's the more humble, yet very fabulous cotton crazy quilt that I love. I do wonder how all those tiny bits were pieced. By hand, turning in a seam allowance? On to paper backings, by machine. Exceptional.

  8. All these quilts are stunning and the embroderies awesome but the first is my favourite. ..thank you for sharing !

  9. Lori, looks like that was a great show. And all those crazy quilts! Was all the embroidery done BY HAND??? OMG. Amazing!
    Hope you're having a great week as well.

  10. Thanks so much for sharing. The fabrics in the first scrap quilt would make some fabulous Jen Kingwell quilts!

  11. SO much to see in those fabulous quilts - thanks for sharing!

  12. There were so many interesting crazy quilts there! They are not my favorite, but I did enjoy many of them.

  13. thanks for sharing the details, they are the best part of crazy quilts to me.
