Neutral Crazy Quilt

I've been working on this quilt top for over a year....off and on. finally decided it needed to get finished. so it is all pieced and awaiting quilting. came out to be 104" square. All paper pieced blocks

Middle heart was a pattern i got from my friend, Mary.

Then a little border and 2 rows of 8" blocks.

A 2" border and some 4" blocks

A 4" border and more 8" blocks

Then an 8" border at the end.  This block with the purple flowers was an embroidered piece i got for Christmas from my friend, Diana. actually she gave me 2 flowers....the other piece is in the quilt also.

There are lots of laces and trims

Some embroidered pieces found on linens at thrift shops

Most seams have some sort of trim or lace or rick rack on them.

Probably be a lot of feathers in those white borders

This quilt is heavy already so after quilting it will be a hefty thing. the blocks were paper pieced. I used a lot of my neutral trims and laces and buttons. i have a sack of pieces that were trimmed off in the paper piecing process. got to come up with a quilt for the leftovers.

Hope to quilt this one soon.
