Crazy Quilting is a slow kind of quilting if you do the embellishment by hand. As you know, I'm an avid fisher-person and I need to have "Take Along" projects ready for this summer! I was re-inspired again. I had began sorting through the various bins of my 'special CQ stash" after I decided that I'd send a Crazy Quilting scrap bag kit of fabrics to the four winners of the recently posted "Crazy Quilting Giveaway"
The winner's color choices were:
- Blue and cranberry
- Jewel tones-blues, greens, purples
- deep blue and purple
My choices were as varied as a peacock display and it was hard to try and hit these requested colors choices.
I learned a bunch of things about myself in this process. I love deep dark and mysterious colors and textures for my crazy quilting stash. When I checked out the difference for my new stash I found the same. This photo above describes how best my choices are as varied as the quilters I hang with!
I did finally choose the varied amounts which I think are more than enough to make a 16 inch pillow cover in crazy quilting.
But uncharacteristically, I didn't take a photo of all of the mailed parcels!! Ugh! I blew that one, but I did get two of the parcels that are mailed out to my followers.
If you would like to follow my blog tutorials on crazy quilting, quilting with reused cloth and new techniques with modern fabric, they are starting May 1, 2012
Thanks for reading and following my blog. Without the kind interest of all of you I wouldn't be so inspired to create the things I love!
Helping me further, as a itinerant quilt art teacher is a choice you can help me with. How you can help me; is to forward a link to my blog in an email invitation to your quilting friends who you think might be interested in my kind of quilt art.
All the best,
