Crazy Quilt Design Ideas
First, cut out different forms of animals (like dinosaur, elephant, monkey, lion, etc.) on the cotton cloth. Now color the animals with fabric paint. Let the color dry up completely. Stitch the pieces on the quilt cover in a random fashion.
Cut pieces of varying shapes and sizes for quilting the pieces. The designs can be blocks, cubes, squares, rectangles, etc. One can also pick up contrasting colors for the pieces or blend hues that would match the foundation of the quilt. Usually cotton and muslin pieces are used for making this form of paper piecing, that renders a rugged look to the quilt.
Cut the fabric in a linear fashion and stitch them vertically over the foundation. Apply the idea of creating animal like stripes (zebra or tiger) over the quilt cover. The striped pattern is quite attractive to kids and teens.
Black and white check pattern is very common. For making a checkerboard over the foundation, first cut small pieces of square-sized clothes and stitch them over the cover of the quilt. Use diverse color combinations for this purpose. For example, make sets of red and blue checks or green and yellow checks.
