What are you most proud of? I like some of the stitch combinations - so fun to try new ones!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Collect a lot of online samples of embroidered crazy quilt squares and save them to something like Pinterest for easy retrieval when you get tired and need some inspiration! The course teacher also provides a beautiful sampler of stitches.

I love crazy quilting it is my new passion. You have done a beauty of a job on your blocks! Will you continue the process on other projects?

Thank you Elaine. Yes, I enjoyed crazy quilting very much. I have several projects in mind. One is to repair an old crazy quilt that I have. It is not a family piece and I had it appraised to make sure its value was not something I'd want to "mess with." It has many pieces that have eroded over time and stitching that needs repair and I plan to bring it back as best I can! I have also started using scraps from various projects to make one of these which I found online: http://www.becauseimme.net/2008/02/crazy-quilt.html . I have 8 six inch squares done so far and it's fun to recognize different projects in each square! And lastly, there are little change purses that are made of crazy quilted pieces and I'd like to try some of those, too. Would love to see some of your work!

Are they stitched by hand? Beautiful

Hi, thank you. The blocks are made first and they are machine stitched together. All of the surface stitching is done by hand. Some is done on the individual blocks before sewing together and some is done afterwards so you can see the full surface as you make decisions. It is really enjoyable to do!
