Crazy Season of Mystery..Blog Hop





Yay!!! I’m done with this…I should not have waited til I had two days to do all the stitching but that is how it works for me…Our block is SPRING!Lisa Bongean Spring Crazy block

daff/LBongeanIMG_0790IMG_0789IMG_0788IMG_0787I love doing this kind of project…I love all the threads and what I really loved was using the #5wt Valdani…we have every #5wt Valdani has…and they are great for the CRAZY STITCHES, as you can tell by the photos here…I do not use anything to aid in making my stitches…as I like that I can just make them fit here and there and I guess I have made lots of this type of thing before and it’s easy for me…

Here are the details of everything:

Note..we have built in thread “deals”…balls are $5.50 each, Free Shipping on anything over $100, if you do not hit the $100 it is $5.99 flat rate.

This is the 3rd block of the Crazy Season Mystery Block Blog Hop.  Each designer will do a 16″ finished Crazy Mat.
If you would like to receive a printed pattern from us instead of downloading it and going to get it printed from somewhere you can do so for $10.00.  We also have it available in the kit as well if you would like to purchase a kit from us.

Just a heads up…I stitched my flannel patches to a foundation…that is how crazy quilts were  done and the way I have always done it…so this might be different than the other designers blocks…The foundation gives it a little more stability to hold all the work nicely.  Please read the instructions carefully and do what it says step by step and it will work…IF  you want to do it your own way that is fine too.  There is no right or wrong way to do anything…well maybe some things..but you get it..
Note…the FREE block pattern no longer exists but can be purchased here..

I just want you all to know that these blocks and their patterns (especially) are A LOT of WORK…so keep that in mind and order kits, threads and whatever you can to support us and ALL the designers in any way you can…I get that you may have what you need, but then go ahead and maybe order some OTHER thing from them (us)…WE ALL APPRECIATE YOUR SUPPORT!

If you are seeing this for the first time…here are the other designer’s blogs to get their blocks and see

the schedule for future blocks.

My best…Lisa

  1. Wow! This is as much work as one of your crazy mats! It’s just darling. Those are the cutest daffodils I’ve ever seen- they are my favorite, so I’m always on the lookout. Thanks so much for this amazing pattern. My kit is ordered! I appreciate your willingness to share and be so generous with us!!!

  2. Just made the copy of your crazy Seasons pattern.. Was it necessary to add “Property of PG, For Personal Use only, Not to be sold commercially.??????? It covers all pages and covers up all the pattern pieces, background pattern and the instructions Quite disappointed in this. Linda Dwinnells, PS, It would have been sufficient on ONE page only. NOT all of them.

    1. It is very light in my copy… and Do you have any idea what it feels like when shops steal your pattern and print it for their customers???? And sell their kit for it??? Believe me I do not want to do this but it is necessary… if everyone was honest I wouldn’t have to do it… please don’t make me out the bad person here…

      1. Lisa I just printed out a page and the “watermark” is very light and doesn’t distract from tracing the pattern pieces. Thanks for such a lovely Spring Crazy section… I’ll be ordering a kit

  3. Lisa – It is absolutely gorgeous! I have a question. I am thinking of ordering it; however, I would frame it or make it into a foot stool. If so how do you finish the outer edge? I would probably put it on black wool. Would you do another crazy stitch around the outside border?

  4. I’m not a wool stitcher but love this spring block. You missed some stitching on the green in space where you have the blue flower near the rabbits back leg. Love your blog. Leta

  5. Wow! You hit a home run on this project, but you do every time! Can’t wait for my kit!
    Would love some videos on your different stitches!

  6. Sooooo appreciate that you showed close ups of your stitches!!! Amazing that you stitched that all in two days…phew🤪

  7. Hi Lisa, I just printed your mystery hop pattern, It looks great! But the picture didn’t print like the other two. Do I have to purchase the pattern to get the colored picture of the pattern? Either way I love it! Thank you

  8. Hi Lisa it is so beautiful! How do I get the other blocks and how do I join the group on the fb page please? You absolutely rock, I love your work..

    1. the schedule of the other designers is on a blog post…and just ask to join the Crazy seasons blog stitch along on FB…someone will let you join

  9. Lisa, not only is your design one of the best, but your stitching, and the variety of stitches, is something I can only hope to even come close to! It’s good to have a goal, and trying to replicate your quality of stitches is a good one!

  10. Thanks you so much for your generosity and for such detail in the pattern. I used to belong to your Wool Crazy Ladies club when JoAnn Mullaly’s book came out and you ran a club for that. Such fun and it brings back lots of memories. Thanks again for this sweet design.

  11. Hi Lisa, your work is beyond beautiful! The amount of work and time you put into this is greatly appreciated. When you mention a foundation as a backing what do you use? I’m not familiar with that. You are a woolie goddess 🙂lol!! Thank you very much

  12. Hi Lisa…
    Thank you sew much for your lovely pattern… I just joined in with the group sew I have catching up to do. I would like to ask… what type of fabric you like to use for your foundation… instructions mention interfacing… I am a sewer and quilter and know there are many types of interfacing to choose from… I would like the option of choosing either fabric or interfacing though. Many thanks Lisa… I have always been a fan of your patterns… Keep them coming!!!

  13. What a fun pattern! I can’t wait for my kit to arrive so I can start stitching. Thank you Lisa!!

  14. I have tried since the first of march to download your pattern. Can you tell me what I am doing wrong. Now I can’t even find it.
