Congratulations! You have found the exciting page of crazy quilting patterns!

Most reading this already know about crazy quilting or crazy patchwork and are ready to look at the fun and creative crazy quilting patterns below.

To learn about the art of crazy quilting, please take a look at our crazy quilt topic page. For a quick review, here are the basics:

What is a crazy quilt?

Crazy quilting refers to the textile art of random crazy patchwork. Crazy patchwork is not a kind of quilting, which is the needlework that holds two or more layers of fabric together to make a quilted blanket.

Instead, it refers to a very specific kind of random patchwork that does not have the repeating geometric design that is important in a typical traditional quilt.  

These quilts have irregular shaped pieces of fabrics sewn together, usually scraps left over from other sewing projects or from pieces of clothing. The random pieces often include a combination of silks, tulle, satins and velvets.

Once the random pieces are sewn together, the seams and patches are then outlined with beautiful and heavy embroidery and are embellished with lovely buttons, lace, ribbons and beads. 

What is the difference between a crazy quilt and a crumb quilt?

Below are both crazy quilting patterns and tutorials for crumb quilts.  Crumb quilts and crazy quilts are very similar. 

However, crumb quilts are usually made of cotton fabric, unlike the variety of velvets, satins, corduroy and more in a crazy or patchwork quilt. 

A crazy quilt also has many embellishments such as embroidery, beads, lace, or ribbons, which a crumb quilt does not.

The fabric pieces in a crumb quilt are usually small and of regular shape such as a square, unlike the irregular shape and sized pieces of a crazy quilt.
