This amazing crazy quilt with the circular fan in the middle was featured by Kerri Murphy of California on her blog: Crazy Stitcher. She has lots of eye candy there for crazy quilt lovers (like the close-up below).
This stunning crazy quilt (above) was made by Stewart West in 1883. It now resides in the San Jose Museum of Quilts and Textiles. It was featured by CQ Magazine Online.

Thelma of the Cupcakes and Daisies blog made this fabulous red and white quilt a while back, but I just saw the photo for the first time and want to show you in case you missed it too. She was inspired by the exhibit in New York City a few years ago: Infinite Variety. This is a sampler quilt of sorts. The quilts overlap, except for the tree in the middle. I love this quilt! Beautiful work, Thelma!
*** You can now see the Infinite Variety exhibit on YouTube! ***

This selvage flower table runner is the creation of Elena of CarolinaSquirrell on Etsy. She lives in Texas and offers a big selection of very beautiful selvage items, hooked rugs, punchneedle, and patterns.
I really like these leaves/petals. Selvages look so good with black and white prints, don't they?

Carol E. is making a word quilt. She has a few more words to go, then she's going to arrange them. Carol's blog is Giraffe Dreams. She has lots of good quilt photos there, and some book reviews as well.
"Sleep" is a good word for a bed quilt, right?
If you haven't seen Tonya Ricucci's book Word Play Quilts, take a look. I made the word "Give" shown on the front cover, bottom row.

Made by Karen Million of Nicholasville, KY, and SewMillionStitches on Etsy, this quilt measures 83" x 99!" The hexagons are 2" in diameter. It's hand pieced and hand quilted. The back is orange.
I've been wondering how a big scrap hexie quilt would look, and here's the answer!
Nice work, Karen!

This hexagon print was made by Melanie Mikecz of San Francisco, CA. Her Etsy shop is: twoems. She's also a dog-lover and a wannabe ballerina.
Wouldn't this make a gorgeous quilt? I think Melanie might love quilt-making too if she gave it a try.
I like this one too. Melanie calls it "Funky Diamonds."
