Still Crazy After All These Years by Ramona Bates
This month’s puzzle spotlights a quilt titled Still Crazy After All These Years made by the Ramona Bates of Little Rock, Arkansas for the 2009 Quilt Alliance contest and auction, Crazy for Quilts.
Materials and processes: Old crazy quilt c. 1900’s (I think). Hand embroidery, applique old lace, some beads. Machine pieced & quilted.
I used an old crazy quilt top as the “beginning” of my quilt. This was my way of “salvaging” the work of some woman from the early 1900’s. That’s why the name – “Still Crazy After All These Years”. [Also, I love the Paul Simon Song].
