Crazy Quilt Heart With Embroidery Stitches For Friend by 


2030 VIEWS JULY 20, 2014 – THANKS!

I taught myself to crazy quilt and many of the embellished embroidery stitches. On this heart I used vintage doilies and other very old pieces of fabrics. The only new piece was the organza that I printed “Friend” on. Finished the seams with embroidery stitches. Finished the edges with chiffon strips and beads every half inch. The substrate for this was 1/2" foam core. Makes a lovely wall hanging for one of my friends that would appreciate all the work it takes to make one of these hearts.

    Beautiful work Sandra. A lot if time spent on this I imagine? It would take me years.

  • Thanks Cynthia. I didn’t time myself on this one. I just completed a crazy quilt design on a 8 panel lamp shade and I quit counting the time after 100 hours. I will be posting it once I photograph it.

    How big is it? Think I’ve just fallen in love with crazy quilting.

  • It is about 12 inches across. Hope you share your work when done.
