Crazy quilt - am I crazy?

One of my dear friends took a quilting workshop when she lived in New York. She made 12 crazy quilt squares about 14-16" square. They are highly embellished and you can see right away a lot of work went into them.  I told her over the phone to just stitch them together in a grid. The problems? None of them are the same size and none are square. They are also so busy that a solid lattice and border are really needed to rest your eye. 

So now I have taken the gauntlet and will look for border fabric, have a template cut and stitch the puppy together.

Yes, those are gold metal coins.
