Crazy Love

Remember this quilt top from ages ago?


It's now a quilt!!! 

It's actually been finished for a few weeks now but I've been struggling to get a really good photo of it.


 The fabrics, Crazy Love by Sis Boom, are so beautiful. They're rich and exotic, bright and pretty all at the same time. I've been trying to capture that on film. 



Although close, I don't think I've quite captured their true beauty.
Maybe it's been the light, my camera or maybe some fabrics just need to be seen in real life to be believed. 








For the backing I used a top I made a few years ago using mostly Brandon Mably fabrics.


I'm happy it's found it's destiny combined with the Crazy Love top. They make a perfect combo. Gbf calls it a Double A side quilt after the vinyl record singles that had great songs on both sides. A flash back to our youth!








Tanya Croft, my Long Arm Wonder Lady and I decided that circles would be a fun pattern to suit both sides. Those bubbly curves soften the geometric angles and make your eyes dance around in circles. 

So there you go, That's the quilt I call Crazy Love. And I am crazy about it! It's on the bed and brightens our room. One day I'm going to make lots of pillow cases in Sis boom fabrics to match. Can't have enough of a good thing!

Fantastic Rachael! I love this quilt! It is like candy...just so yummy :) And using the Brandon M top as the back is perfect. Great job! Jennifer P is going to be in Columbus next weekend at the Country Living Fair. I am hoping to get a chance to meet her.

Crazy Love is a joyous quilt. I can appreciate your working to give us great great photos. The other side of this quilt is different and wonderful as well. Which side will you use/ Both!!

Love the bright colours in it, glad you were able to track down a good photo location :o)

Heather said...

Love this bright and happy quilt. Great idea to use another top for the back - maybe I need to try that to reduce my pile of tops!

Heidi said...

but....you're too young to know double A-sides....but BF definitly is right. Wonderful colours and triangles are always great !

Sooli said...

Love it! The fabrics are gorgeous, so rich and vibrant, perfect quilt design for them too.

Karen said...

This has tuned out so well. I really enjoy the vibrant colours in this quilt. Great choice with the quilting, too. Love the idea of using another top as the backing. That is such a smart idea.

Ciao

Deborah said...

Oh my goodness and wow!! This is on my list of favorite quilts!!

Melissa P said...

Drop dead gorgeous! Both sides! I commiserate with you on the difficulty of getting the absolute best photo of projects that involve Sis Boom. It's almost as if the saturated colors are just too fabulous for film. But you've done an excellent job capturing the beauty and love in this quilt. Love it!

Donna~~ said...

Love your Crazy Love! If it's more gorgeous in person than in your photos, then it must be stunning! Really really lovely!

shannon said...

i love it...especially the double sided-ness...

i like the simplicy of the triangles...i have some fabric that i haven't decided what i might want to do with it...this might be the winner :)

thanks for sharing!

Colette said...

Wow that's wonderful, those colours are really juicy! I love that it's a Double A side too.

Sasha said...

Wonderful x 2! Your amazing way with color combinations really enhances all those beautiful fabrics. Great quilting too! I'm sure you'll enjoy this one for a long time. It's fun to see glimpses at your lovely property too!

Tamie said...

Lovely. I love both sides.

regan said...

I'm in love with that quilt! And it shows off perfectly hanging on that tree! It's like a black and white photo that's had a digital color added to the quilt! So vibrant and alive! I love it!

And you are way too young to remember vinyl records and 'A' sides! You must have been watching an old Gidgit movie! lol

O'Quilts said...

I am very impressed! A beautiful quilt! I wouldn't know which side to pick. Great job.

Pinkadot Quilts said...

Rachael it is awesome! I love the front as much as the back! How cool, it is kind of like a 2 for 1.
I think the circles or bubbles go perfect with all the angles.
I love a finished quilt!

Kelly said...

Tht is one gorgeous quilt and you photographed it beautifully!

Shay said...

Ummmm totally in love with that quilt my friend. And the idea of a double sided beauty just makes it twice as gorgeous!

Janet said...

Wow, what a gorgeous quilt, on both sides! Congrats on the finish, I love it and I know it would be even better in person.

Marg said...

It's absolutely stunning Rachael. Beautiful colours and wonderful design.

Lucy @ Charm About You said...

So stunning!! I love both sides but the triangles are so beautiful! Gorgeous fabric! I like the double A idea :)

Barb said...

I have CRAZY LOVE for this quilt. It is fabulous.
I love that used a quilt top for the backing. I have to confess that is one backing I haven't tried yet - what have I been doing with my time? lol.
The bubbles add so much to it with their loopy movement -
Hooray for a beautiful finish - enjoy!
p.s. I loved all the creative photos

Catherine said...

Wow this is beautiful and that goes for both the front and back. Great choice of quilting design too.

melissa said...
