Our Son and Daughter in Law and family moved from Michigan to Alaska in July.  There was a lot of household "fluff" that had to be left behind.  Kristie asked if I would make her a quilt, using old clothing that held special meaning to her.  The shirt and trousers Jon wore when they were married, her deceased Dad's sweat pants,  a couple T shirts, a cotton dress she made in high school, and a small quilted sampler their daughter made in school were the items I had to work with.  I used the left overs to make a crazy quilt on the back, and machine quilted the finished top and back.  My first real free motion machine quilting project.  The second pic shows the crazy quilt side

I like the reflective crosses in the center. But the whole design came out nice. You should post a photo of the crazy quilt on the back. The quilt is great with some memories.

This is a sweet quilt.  I like the design and the way you worked it all together.

In my effort to add the picture of the crazy quilt side I somehow managed to duplicate the other side as well....I'm sorry for that.  Now, I do't know how to delete the duplicated picture.  I'm sorry.  Thank you all for the kind comments.  We have 4 married children.  I have 6 more to go.  The 9 of 10 grandchildren all have crazy quilts that I made for them.  I should have enough practice to have some moderate quilting skill when I finish!  :-)

The cross in the center on the crazy quilt side is a school project that our granddaughter made in school, and Kristie didn't want to lose that memory.  I took it apart, used small pieces of it on the other side, and made that central cross on the crazy quilt side so nothing of Marlie Jo's handiwork was unused either. It was a fun project.
