My crazy quilting life in one blog post!
This block pretty much defines the encrusted look I love to do..... pieces that the longer you look at them the more you see... And I like to tell a story with my blocks even though I may the only person who hears it... I also have a real soft spot for the whimsical and it often shows up in my work.
Even though the traditional lace and embroidery work such as my piece on the left is my comfort zone, I continually try to stretch the limits of what I can do with a needle.... such as on the right.
This quest for challenges is why I love to join round robins. I'm asked to do things and use colors that I would have never done on my own... Over the years I've been in Crazy Quilt International, I figure I have worked on well over 100 blocks which are now around the world. Here are just a sampling. Please enjoy and thanks for stopping by. I would love it if you would become a follower and visit regularly... Also drop by Pigtails and Quilts and visit other crazy quilters and see what's happening.
