To honor and celebrate our favorite crazy mom, let's do the logical thing and make her a quilt!
We will use Rita's Economy Block Tutorial (as Amanda is admittedly frugal, and we can use scraps!).
Use a solid for the center so you can write your name and where you live, or a more personal message if you'd like. Prisma Micron pens work great for writing on fabric, just give it a good press with a hot iron to set the ink!
Our birthday girl loves her some polka dots, so feel free to go dotty, but she isn't such a big fan of purple, so use it sparingly (read:skip it!). Other than that, go bright, go happy, go CRAZY(see what I did there?)!
These finish at 5" so we will need a lot of blocks to make her quilt! That shouldn't be a problem with her many friends and followers!
Share this info with anyone and everyone that would like to participate! Post your finished blocks on Instagram tagging @crazymomquilts and #lordylordyamandasforty!
Please mail the blocks to me by August 1! Feel free to include a card or note, and I'll deliver them with the finished quilt!
Thanks so much, and sew like the wind, my friends!
