Crazy Quilting, Beading, Embroidery 2 . . .
As I have found more and more beautiful examples of crazy quilting by numerous extremely talented people, I have decided to open more boards to accomodate my CQ pins. It will make it easier to scroll through the pins quickly, if you wish to repin them . . . I have been trying to separate light and dark blocks into separate boards, whenever possible.
I ❤ crazy quilting, beading & ribbon embroidery . . . Little Heart with Victorian Colors! I completed a this heart for my CQ'er friend Lydia. I made 7x7" block heart to have more area to embellish, I didn't make complicated patches so I applied seam treatments and SRE work more easily. I used Victorian colors and selected neat color, small size oyas. ~By Rengin Kutbay Yazitas
I ❤ crazy quilting & ribbon embroidery . . . My work on Cobi's block. NOT the crochet item, that is done by another member of the group. I made the basket with flowers, the stem-stitch roses with the spider in his web. I added beads to the seam on the left & the button with the mother of pearl heart in it at the end of the dark red velvet trim. ~By Ati, Norway
I ❤ crazy quilting & embroidery . . . I've been taking a basic CQ class on STITCHMAP. The class has us making a thread holder, a pin cushion & a needle holder. The thread holder focuses on seam treatments & embroidered motifs. The pin cushion on beading, & the needle holder on SRE.This is the thread holder. I made the spider web with DMC metalic thread. I hope to add some beading when I complete the beading lesson. ~By Cynthia, So Many Needles

I ❤ crazy quilting & ribbon embroidery . . . Dark Dusty BLOCK THREE - This is how the block looks complete or at least complete for now. Once I join them together who knows what I may add. ~By Lorraine Stobie, Creative Daily
I ❤ crazy quilting & ribbon embroidery . . . Dark Dusty BLOCK 4 FINAL- This is the final result of block 4! Since the top was quite heavily stitched with the background applique I decided to keep the other stitching on the block somewhat simpler. ~By Lorraine Stobie, Creative Daily

I ❤ crazy quilting & embroidery . . . DARK DUSTY BLOCK 6 COMPLETE- These are the final results of Block 6. I've added some embellished trim, a few more seam treatments & a beaded dragonfly to complete. ~By Lorraine Stobie, Creative Daily
I ❤ crazy quilting & embroidery . . . I can guarantee that if you join in round robins you will eventually have a block arrive with colors that will make you gasp! I will share a few with you. I know my comfort zone, pastels & muted colors, & I wrap these colors like a quilt right up to my ears. Bright intense color makes me edgy & I find it difficult to work on. But once I do get them & finish them, they have often become my most favorite blocks. Loved this block when I finished. ~By olderrose
I ❤ crazy quilting, beading & ribbon embroidery . . . Block for Sharon's class. A design problem I see on blocks... There will be 2 strong focal points competing with each other... The solution is an easy one... make them unequal by building one up & reducing the effect of the other. Adding additional embellishing to the purple rose & giving it a prime position nearer the center makes it the dominant focal point. ~By olderrose
