What materials did you use? This is crazy quilt patterning on a small scale. This oval pendant is about three inches long by one and one-half inches. I used several fabrics, various stitches for emphasis, then a number of charms to decorate. The five dangling hearts complete the pendant.

What are you most proud of? I like the way the parts came together. Learning to work on such a small scale, and to use ribbon,and beads in a pleasing design was great fun. I also placed a couple old buttons and a very small starfish that I had kept in a box for years.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Be aware of scale. It takes very few stitches to fill the line between fabrics or few beads to make a flower. The items to place on the pendant must be small or parts of items. The challenge is putting then all together.
