Crazy Heart CQ started some time ago. Truth be told I had begun the inner 'heart' while I was mulling over getting started on the Smithers Centennial Quilt which was the early days of 2012. How time flies!
I decided again this spring of 2017 it was time that 'Crazy Heart' found a home and direction. I had originally used some fringy braid that was hand sewn around the outside edge of the heart. But when I reviewed this peice, the fringy braid had to go. It was this initial start to remove the fringy braid that I realised underneath the braid, the heart was simply hand sewn with a light hand.
The new trim I chose to use was brown and black varigated wool. I did a quick and rustic whip stitch twice over to couch it down to the center of the quilt.
I have been working on this quilt in hopes of getting it done for my sister's birthday, but missed that deadline and so it goes.
But only time will tell me when its done!
In the meantime, here is another project I'm working on. This one must be done for July 1 Wedding Bells. I will post a full write up on making a denim quilt using photo transfers later this summer.
Take care and thanks for dropping by to read up on my projects and do leave me a comment.
