Crazy quilts -- am I missing something?

I'm a fan of most things crafty, but I just can't get into crazy quilts. I don't like looking at them, or touching them (and I'm a chronic fabric toucher), and I simply can't imagine why anyone not desperate for warmth and with no other choice, would want to make one. Then I got my Club BMV sale notice email, and there was an ad for Barbara Randal's Crazy Quilting With Attitude. Is this form of quilting really popular? Am I missing something?

  1. I've been a follower of your blog for a short while (maybe 3 months?) and just tonight started reading through your blog. I think quilting is like any other art and different aesthetics appeal to different people. Crazy quilting may be to you what many people think of Picasso's work when he moved away from more traditional styles of painting. I like a lot of crazy quilting, but I've never made one, and there are tons I've seen that I dislike. I don't think it's popular though as I've never seen anyone at a quilting guild meeting show off their crazy quilting other than small pieces of a wearable item.
