Crazy Quilt Pillow II

Project Description

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.

Q&A with Marie Withrow

Thank you Seri.
Lynda F asked:
Beautiful!

Thank you - it was fun to make!
RxTech asked:
that is one of the prettiest pillows I have ever seen. That looked like it took forever to make. Great job!
Marie Withrow answered:
Thanks so much! You know, it did not take that long! The four blocks can be pieced together in a couple of days and then I work on the embroidery when watching T.V., waiting for my sister's next move in online Scrabble, or when I'm on starter duty at the golf course for six hours! I think I started and finished this in less than a few weeks.
Allie Aller asked:
This is just truly fabulous. You DO look like you were enjoying yourself. I love seeing the Paris Flea Market fabric used in your unique way, too. Great work!
Marie Withrow answered:
Thank you again for the wonderful class! I've started a 3rd pillow using the Paris Flea Market fabric again. While posting this pillow I could not remember the fabric collection's name and should have looked it up - so pretty!!
LindaWack asked:
Marie, Beautiful! Thanks for sharing about the time it took you to make this. It inspires me to get going on mine!
Marie Withrow answered:
Thank you and good luck! It really was fun and part of the fun was just trying and learning new stitches. I had to take out some but you'd never know!!!
