Crazy Quilting, Beading, Embroidery . . .

I admire the many hours and talent it takes to create one of these masterpieces with needle and thread . . .

New Beginnings Bead Journal Project for April, 2008. Bead embroidery on fabric. This one was totally improvisational... no pre-planned concept at all. Now that it's finished it seems to be all about rebirth, spring, a gentle movement toward something new... definitely transitions. ~By Robin Atkins

I ❤ embroidery . . . An antique, circular table topper... Embroidered on a net ground using a Luneville or Beauvais hook.  The hook makes tiny chain stitches, also referred to as Point de Beauvais... This embroidery style came to France via Italy and originated in China. You can read more about this embroidery style here and read of the Point de Beauvais museum located in Bourg-le-Roi near Normandy. I hope to visit there one day. ~From Plays with Needles

I ❤ crazy quilting & embroidery . . . In the quilt shows of today traditional and art quilts are given much glory but it is hard to get the judges to agree that crazy quilts are quilts too! Just because the crazy quilt may not have batting or may not be quilted does not mean they are not quilts. In reality, the crazy quilts are some of the finest "Art Quilts" in the world! ~By Pig Tails and Quilts

I ❤ crazy quilting & ribbon embroidery . . . On one of the blocks I want a rose arbor and two I've done in the past which I liked was a lace arbor and a twig arbor. The twig arbor was for Ati and is on a piece of lace her grandmother made.The trick here was to have the arbor and cover as little of the lace as possible. ~By olderrose

I ❤ crazy quilting & embroidery . . . I finished the final block in our Southern Cross Crazies RR & I am just about to post the block off to its owner. It's the first time that I have worked on a RR. I was nervous. It was lucky that the other 7 ladies were very good embroiderers & I had such lovely work to view every month. I got to see other peoples work but I also got a chance to work with other colours & ideas & we only had to add an eighth of a part of the block ~By Linda Steele
