Crazy Quilting Community
Early last winter, I decided to check into the Google + communities and was surprised to find no one had started a page for crazy quilting. And so, that is how I became an owner of this community- Crazy Quilting Community.
Now, onto the reason why I started the community?
I have spent loads of time looking around and seeing who is doing what. I have come to find some dedicated crazy quilters and many of them are doing lots of gorgeous embroidery. For me, its all about the embroidery. Really it is. But embellisment is really a super individual choice on what is used and how. I tend to gravitate towards those crazy quilts with more hand embroidery than frilly embellishments.
I know you'll love joining up and posting on my new Crazy Quilting Community Page.
And its growing so fast, its amazing how fast one of these grew really!
So some small rules are in place. I didn't want to restrict people from sharing what they are working on, but I didn't want it to clutter up like a marketplace page. So make sure your posts are not to market your stuff. If someone is in awe of your work they can find out by searching an image, so don't put "for sale" anything on this community, please.
Also, if you are not a maker of crazy quilts, by all means please do join. We all love to read kind comments from people from all over the world, so do join me there and post your work, even if its a tiny project.
lovely crazy projects, your embroidery looks great.
Thank you Silvia. I love doing hand embroidery. Its my therapy.Delete
I love CQ. Drool over those romantic pieces, but have no desire to create or live with them. I am also drawn to pieces that showcase embroidery. We all find our pace and style when we stitch. I admire all handwork and love to see it promoted and carried forward for the next generation to love and to learn.
Well said Carol! Its my dream to empower anyone to give it a try. My first block was a log cabin, my second was the craziest block. I made it into a hippie bag many decades ago now. Unfortunately no photo of that one.Delete
What a treat to be able to see all your creations together in one place. Lots of fun details to pore over!!ReplyDelete
It is and you must have lots to share? Please come along and join the 125 others who love crazy quilts.Delete
Hi Carli - I love your crazy quilts and agree that what I like best is the embroidery stitches rather than the embellishments! I would join but am not on FB!ReplyDelete
Hi Karen, this community is Google + and I know you are not set up with that. I'll have a look on Facebook for another crazy quilting group.Delete
Beautiful work and great idea, I'll check into it!ReplyDelete
Please do check Janie, and join too! In my view crazy quilting is evolving and changing with the times. Very exciting stuff happening.Delete
Your work is beautiful, especially your colour choices.ReplyDelete
Well Jo, the results at my first show that you were involved with shot my popularity through the roof. I appreciated the lift winning First Place in Most Innovative in 2004 at the IPM & Quilt Show. Thank you for continued support.Delete
Hi Carli, I found your lovely blog when I was researching for an article I wrote for Quiting Focus. I was also interested in finding some more modern style crazy quilts and I found a great tutorial that used bright, modern solids. A completely different look, but still a crazy quilt! Here's the article link if you'd like to check it out https://quiltingfocus.com/2015/09/crazy-quilt-block-tutorial/ReplyDelete
