You’ve never made a Crazy quilt block this way – unless… (giveaway!)

You’ve never made a Crazy quilt block this way . . . unless you know Janet Nesbitt and her Crazy approach to piecing!

Wish-Upon-a-Crazy-Star-quilt
Wish upon a (Crazy) Star quilt

So what’s this “Crazy” sewing about? Here’s the process in a nutshell:

First you do a little a little stackin’ and whackin’
Then you do a little switchin’ and sewin’
And it’s all a whole lotta quiltmakin’ fun!

In her new book Crazy at the Cabin, Janet—formerly of Buggy Barn—will inspire you to get a little crazy with some out-of-the-box piecing. Her collection of cozy quilts will have you daydreaming about summers at the cabin with family and friends. But you don’t need to be anywhere near a cabin to get a cabin-at-the-lake look.

Welcome to the Lake quilt from
Crazy at the Cabin

The perfectly imperfect technique is fun, forgiving . . . and totally addicting. Are you ready to join this quilting craze? We’ve invited Janet to be our guest writer today—she’ll explain why she chose a summer-cabin theme for her first book with Martingale. Welcome, Janet!


Janet-NesbittThis is just like Christmas . . . I’ve waited and waited and finally! The day is here and I’m so excited to unwrap my special present! You all know what it’s like: that present’s been tucked under the tree, looking so pretty, calling your name, for what seems like forever. Well, today is the day I get to unwrap that present—and it’s even better than what I’d wildly imagined! So here, wanna take a peek?

Crazy at the Cabin

Here it is! My brand new “crazy” book, Crazy at the Cabin. It’s full of fun new quilts, many of which I designed while up at the lake last summer.

Of course, it was crazy-hot . . .

. . . while we motored around the lake . . .

Then is was time for a snack . . .

. . . to hold us over until it was time for fireworks!

What a crazy-fun time we had at the lake. And what a crazy-fun time you’ll have making these quilts!

So what is all this “crazy” stuff going on at the cabin? Now before your imagination takes off in all directions, let me explain. “Crazy” refers to a method of piecing that I’ve developed over the last 20 years. It’s a bit like making cardboard puzzles as a kid: you cut it up and so it can go back together, right? But because we are quilters, we add seam allowances—hence the patterns!

You begin by tracing a full-size pattern from Crazy at the Cabin onto freezer paper; then you iron the freezer-paper template onto a stack of fabrics. Cut on the lines, make a quick shuffle, and put it all back together again. It’s a snap!

Crazy-piecing-how-to
Clear, concise directions with lots of color photos will help you understand the process.

This has been the best Christmas present ever. I’d like to thank all the folks at Martingale/That Patchwork Place for giving me this opportunity to share my designs with you. Martingale is the greatest! We’ve worked so hard to make this beautiful book a reality—enjoy!


Janet, we are so excited that your book is finally here—people are already going CRAZY for it!

Have you tried Crazy piecing of any kind? Tell us in the comments and you could win a copy of Crazy at the Cabin! We’ll choose a winner one week from today and let you know by email if you win.

    —Susan Reynolds on August 5, 2016
  • Love, love, love the quilts and runners shown above! I’m at the cabin right now, and can just see them hanging here! The moose one made me laugh out loud! I’d hang items special to my grandkids from their antlers. I’ve made a quilt using this technique (a buggy barn pattern). And loved it…so did the gal I gave it to! I’d love to win this book, and congratulations to Jante and Martingale on publishing it.

  • I really like all the designs in the new book. The colors used are awesome. About 9 years ago we bought a cabin on a lake, and have tried to decorate to bring colors and nature into the house. The designs in Crazy at the Cabin, would be a prefect to add to the decor.
    Thanks for all you do.

    —Mary on August 5, 2016

    For my mothers 80th Birthday
    I used photos from when she was a baby, to the present day.
    She loved it so much that she cried.
    My mother passed away 8 years ago, and when I look at the Album, it brings back good memories

    —Karen DH on August 5, 2016
  • I’ve only done some crazy foundation pieced blocks! This looks like fun…love the "make the moost" quilt!

    Snoodles on August 5, 2016
  • I did start a large "Buggy Barn" star quilt quite some time ago. I stacked, I whacked, and carefully placed all the stacks in a new pizza box, perfect for taking to group sew…..four finished blocks later, the wind caught the box just right and those pieces scattered. The large quilt morphed into a nice wall hanging. It was a fun way to construct blocks.

    —Judy g on August 5, 2016
  • I have only hand-pieced crazy blocks. This looks like so much fun!

    —Karen Carr on August 5, 2016

    —Nancy L on August 5, 2016
  • Yep, been doing piecing like this for well over 40 years. Made lots of things in the 60’s long before any book or method was published using this method. All things are not new nor unique to one individual. Many of these "new" methods have been around longer than you think.

    —Cindy on August 5, 2016
  • I have never tried Crazy Piecing of any kind. I want to win because it looks like so much fun.

    —Sue Goodin on August 5, 2016

    —Berit Dalby on August 5, 2016
  • My first ‘crazy’ was Crazy Jacks. It was a little scary to cut all of those fat quarters and have faith that it would come together as it should. I absolutely love that quilt, so I moved on to a larger one – Crazy Hearts. Another great experience! The patterns are well written. I see so many projects in this new book that I want to try!

    —Kathy Secor on August 5, 2016
  • I love these crazy at the cabin quilts!
    Have never made a crazy quilt yet but I’ve admired them. thanks!

    —Marian Allen on August 5, 2016
  • For the most part, I don’t really like crazy quilts. I do appreciate all the work that goes into making one. However, this author’s technique really intrigues me. I quite like these designs. They are fun and fresh. Congratulations Janet Rae Nesbitt.

    —Rose-Marie on August 5, 2016
  • OH yes I tried the crazy piecing and nearly went crazy LOL! I got to the point I did not know where to add another piece on it, got frustrated and put it back in the piece box to hide it! (: I want to try again but with supervision. Thanks for asking!

    —Kathy on August 5, 2016
  • Oh my gosh! What an adorable lake/cabin quilt. I should have known that it was Janet Nesbitt, from the Buggy Barn. I’ve always loved their quirky designs. The other photos from the book are just as interesting and unique. Can’t wait to see a copy of her book to find a project for next summer’s sewing retreats.

    —Mary Smith on August 5, 2016
  • I rarely buy books any more as I have so many of them, but I would buy this book in a Texas heartbeat! I am swooning over the Folk Art Fireworks and can make some relatives that live at the lake very happy with the sailboats runner! I have this book on reserve at Amazon already! If I win, then I can gift one in my bee swap at Christmas. I Love This Book.

    —Sheryl Hunt on August 5, 2016
  • I’ve done some fabric creating and guess it’s technically crazy quilting but not the crazy block piecing like shown. I’m curious… and think I’ll be doing more soon because it looks more like "lazy-quilting", my kind of project. Thanks for a new book of such fun and folky projects.

    —Marianne in TN on August 5, 2016
  • I remember as a little girl, maybe 8 or 9, my grandmother let me take a stab with a needle to do some embrodery on a quilt she was making. Would love to do more!

    Laura B on August 5, 2016
  • I have gathered all sorts of "fancy" fabrics from many remnant bins to make a traditional crazy quilt. i bought trims of all kinds- lace, charms, small buttons- to add as embellishment, but have not yet begun to put it together. My plan is to use the decorative stitches on my Janome to add interest.

    —Cathy Smith on August 5, 2016

    Ruth Janssen on August 5, 2016
  • I made a log cabin quilt from a buggy barn pattern years ago. It was a lot of fun and a totally new technique for me. I love this new book and would love to try making a few of these delightful patterns.

    I am currently making quilts for orphans for the organization Quilts Beyond Borders….I am sure I could incorporate these ideas for the childrens quilts.

    —Ellen Janes on August 5, 2016

    —Pat V. on August 5, 2016

  • Years ago, a quilting teacher from Australia came for a workshop at our local quilt shop and I loved the "wonky" way she did this, then later, I made the stacking method in an all curved pieces quilt from another book. I can’t remember the names of either teacher/writer, but I absolutely loved the method. I would love to have this book if I win. Thanks so much. Jane

    —Anne on August 5, 2016
  • Just some simple blocks that ended up like a version of a wonky log cabin! then I read a tip to use a 5 sided center to get more of a true crazy block and did some trivet tile pads out of that. Have some scraps I’m saving for a baby or doll quilt of beautiful flannels that I want to also do some embroidery on.

    Love the cabin themes and colors…

    —Sharon Schipper on August 5, 2016

    —Lola Crouch on August 5, 2016
  • Sí, una vez tenía retales muy pequeños, tiras de menos de una pulgada en realidad. Se me ocurrió la idea de hacer una estrella fugaz. Empecé a coser las tiras, pero no estaban rectas y eran más anchas por un lado que por otro, pero las cosí según estaban. Cuando vi el resultado era loco, loco, loco. Pero yo seguí en las mías. Corté una estrella con ayuda de un patrón de un libro y lo monté. Aquella era la estrella más colorida y deforme en sus piezas que jamás hubiera visto. Luego le añadí unas tiras empalmadas para que fuesen largas desde el centro hasta dos pulgadas de los picos: era una estrella fugaz. Y eso la remató. Ya era la estrella más loca del Universo. Se la dí a mi hermana para el cuarto de lo niños.

    Translation: Yes, once had tiny scraps, strips of less than one inch in reality. I came to the idea of doing a shooting star. I started to sew the strips, but they were not straight and they were wider on one side than on the other, but I sewed them as they were. When I saw the result was crazy, crazy, crazy. But I followed in the mine. Cut a star with help of a pattern from a book and it rode. That was the star more colorful and deformed parts had ever seen. Then added you some spliced strips that might be long from the Center up to two inches of the peaks: was a shooting star. And that it topped. It was the craziest of the universe star. I gave it to my sister for the kids room.

    —Margarita on August 5, 2016

  • Yes. I have tried crazy piecing, 2 years ago as a challenge at our quilt guild group we were given a paper lunch bag with scrapes it it and we had to create something using the scrapes it looked scary to do but it turned out just fine. I made a lap quilt and was proud I could do it.

    —Alfreda Rupert on August 5, 2016
  • I haven’t tried "crazy quilting" because I am very intimidated by it. It looks fun and creative, but then I think….oh…but what if I cut it wrong. This book would give me some confidence in trying this technique! Cute cute projects!

  • Congrats on your new book!

    —Carolyn S Cecil on August 5, 2016
  • I crazy pieced a twin quilt top by using square newspaper and randomly grabbing fabric from a laundry basket full of scraps. After however many blocks that was, I swear there were more fabric scraps left in the basket than when I started. I’ve also done the kind of piecing described above, where fabrics are swapped around, in a number of projects — most of them blocks I designed myself.

    —Brenda on August 5, 2016
  • Not yet…but I do so wish to try it!

  • No, haven’t tried yet but it looks like like a blast of fun!

    —Linda Haan on August 5, 2016

    —Wendy on August 6, 2016

    —Barb jacovitch on August 7, 2016
  • I tried to used up scraps to make crazy quilt pieces, then stitch in the ditch with a couple fancy sewing machine stitches. Although they were fun, they didn’t turn out worthy enough to become part of a quilt, or even a pillow top…just a learning experience. I’d love to learn the proper technique. This sounds like a wonderful book!

    —Rose D. on August 7, 2016

  • Always wanted to make a traditional crazy quilt. These variations look like fun, and seem to be very efficient in the use of fabric (I like that)!

    😉

  • I’ve made one crazy quilt several times and it was a lot of fun, easy and turned out great. Would love to try Jane’t designs, especially the Folk-art fireworks pattern.

    —Janet on August 7, 2016
  • Love those stack um up and cut blocks!! I made a great "Crazy" quilt sweatshirt this way. I finished it using all those stitched on my sewing machine that you never use between each seem. I would love to make the flower runner. I love the way it was quilted. Thanks for such wonderful books!

    —Cindy McVey on August 7, 2016
  • I made a crazy tree’s quilt a year or so back, and really loved doing it.

  • I’ve made one crazy quilt square in a workshop but never got to the rest of the quilt.

    —Lucy L on August 7, 2016
  • I have not made crazy blocks like these before. I love the designs, especially the stars and sailboats.

  • I have always wanted to make so old fashioned crazy quilt for myself but life seems to get in the way. I would love to win and use this b ok.

  • I have not tried this method but very intrigued! 🙂

    —Nancy on August 7, 2016
  • No I haven’t! It always seemed too "busy" or difficult to plan the colors. I love this new way of "craziness simplified".

    —JANIS PIERSONS on August 7, 2016
  • I’ve never tried crazy piecing. In fact this is first I’ve heard of it. Sounds interesting.

    —Susan Clarkson on August 7, 2016
  • I’ve never tried crazy piecing. But it looks like a lot of fun!

    —Pearl on August 7, 2016
  • A Crazy Quilt looks like it would be fun to make.
    We live on a "Lake" and could make the "Moost" of it!!

    elr on August 7, 2016
  • I have never tried this before! L love your small welcome to the lake quilt and I must make one for our cabin! I have the perfect spot for it.

    —Ann Harrison on August 7, 2016
  • Yes I’ve made a crazy quilt out of wool pieces from a friend that gave me scraps from a coat factory she work at years ago. Then I did wool applique baskets and flowers on it, looks good . It was a long time in the making. It was on my (get it done)list for the quilt guild challenge. But I sure would like to try a new way of doing crazy quilts as I have lots of scraps to play with. So would love to win Janet’s book.

    —Charlotte Ceeko on August 7, 2016
  • I have never tried this method of piecing, yet . . . The quilts in this book are absolutely marvelous. What a wonderful chance to win, thank you so much.

    —laurie on August 7, 2016
  • I made a small mat "crazy quilt style" from a fabric sampler that I dug out of the trash at a fabric store – fun "recycling" at its best 🙂 I like it when I can make something fun from something someone else tosses away.

    —Sherr Hines on August 7, 2016
  • I made my first crazy quilt in the 70’s and this book is far an improvement for the effort that I did back then. Love all these patterns in this new book.

    carol on August 7, 2016

    —Rita W on August 8, 2016
  • I have done the stars this way. Never thought to use Snail’sTrail for waves! Lovely👏👏 Like all the quilts and the back stories,especially since I’m sitting in oh-so-warm Central Arizona. Favorite is Welcome to the Lake. I would definitely make more than two or three of these.

    —Delores Angus on August 8, 2016

    —Cindy on August 8, 2016

    —Karen A on August 8, 2016
  • I’m a fairly new quilter who lives in a log cabin. Soo many of the designs would look great in our home. Thanks for this opportunity. I am recently retired and just finished setting up my craft room.

    —Carol on August 8, 2016

  • I would love to try this technique. Thanks for the opportunity to win the book. The quilts are amazing!! Love them.

    —Karyn MacKell on August 10, 2016
  • Well,I guess "Crazy" says it all. That is exactly the effect piecing had on me. Intrigued by your brief explanation, I would love to try your twenty year labor of love technique. Thank you for being so gracious to share (via Martingale/That Patchwork Place folks), your method for a "Crazy" application of piecing with your fellow aspiring quilters. Also, for making available to us a chance to win the compilation of your works. On a side note,(referencing your comment on cardboard puzzles), my granddaughter and I cut up Christmas cards and piece them back together. We are very proud of that craft. Looking forward to turning the pages of "Crazy at the Cabin" and creating something beautiful.

  • I have tried several times to get a crazy patch pattern that I truly like and enjoy doing. This book interests me. The quilts shown are out of the ordinary and are something I would like to try again.
