Have you noticed my interest in crazy quilting?

Note: Marilyn asked what type of thread I use for crazy quilting. While most of the books suggest a variety of appropriate threads, my favorite is size 8 DMC Perle Cotton. I've also used size 5 (which is thicker) and DMC embroidery floss.

I had an old UFO - just 6 crazy quilt blocks that I made into a doll quilt earlier this year. I've had a lot of fun collecting and reading Crazy Quilting books and trying different stitches on this pint size quilt. My embroidery skills are improving as I go along.
