Design It, Quilt It: Free-Form Techniques

with Cindy Needham

  • A small crazy quilt surrounded by a large border of quilting cotton. The thread for the free motion quilting is 100Wt Invisafil. I used a layer of cotton batting with half a layer of wool batting on top. I used #15 and #11 beads in areas of the quilting
  • plus a mother-of-pearl button (this repeats elements in the crazy quilting). The piece is 19" x 20".

Amazing. Did you do this on a regular domestic machine?
Thread Head answered:
Thanks! Yes, a regular DSM - my trusty Husqvarna!

Thanks! It is so much fun trying out different designs.
Michelequilts asked:
Wow! Let me just say... wow! What do you call that type of stitching between the feathers and the pebbles that surround the crazy patch? Again, so lovely!!!
Thread Head answered:
Thanks! The stitch is called "Scribbling", it is from Cindy Needham (it is as much fun to stitch as it sounds).
