Crazy Quilting





I was thinking I really need to do some more ribbon embroidery. It was so long ago that I'd done some

I decided to look around on the internet for inspiration, and stumbled across some online courses for crazy quilting

I'd never heard of this before. It involves sewing pieces of fabrics together, thread embroidery on the seams, then ribbon embroidery added, and so much more

I was ready to play

Each time we finish a task, we will be given another

Task 1, 2, and 3 was a bit of reading and learning, and choosing supplies. Then at task 4 we got to cut and sew the pieces of fabric together.

It took me a bit to figure out what was required. But then it clicked

It wasn't too even at first, so I un-picked the edges and straightened it out a bit




The next task was to show off some of the beads i had in my stash







Then I could start a bit of embroidery on some of the seams on my straightened out crazy quilt piece






Probably my favorite part was the french knot flowers (I think they're hyacinths)



Here's the link to the classes if anyone wants to do the other ones:  https://shawkl-classes.blogspot.com/
