Crazy Chaos at Chertsey

We had our March session at Cherstey Museum today, and we were having a go at Crazy Patchwork - we were mostly using velvet, but there was plenty of cotton scraps mixed in with the cotton scraps, plus ribbon, lace, buttons and assorted embellishments, as well as the usual scissors, pins, and threads.  Add to that we had 10 ladies - Chaos!

I'm loving the colour schemes the ladies chose:

We also had some Show and Tell finishes from last month:

And some inspiration for future sessions: A "Proddy" rag rug - just look at the effect.  The written instructions are on a Pinterest post, here.

Even the back looks beautiful!


  1. Excellent - rag rugs and hoovers are not my friends!

  2. Looks like everyone had great fun. I love the rag rug

  3. ooh what fun- like you say, lovely colours! Never tried those proddy rug things, maybe one day when I run out of patchwork and knitting? (so I guess, never...)

  4. Looks like everyone had a great time Benta!
