I was fooling around with these commercially available templates to make crazy quilt blocks. they finish at 8 inches square. I am using 30's reproduction fabrics, and using the specialty stitches on my Janome sewing machine to embellish each seam.
I am using black sewing thread. This imitates a style of crazy quilt I've seen at antique/vintage shops,and on-line, say, on ebay.
In the midst of this embroidery, I was not happy in how the top was turning out. Now that most seams are done, I like it better. Still, it's not a style that most people know, or would appreciate. My plan is to finish the embroidery and then consider what to do.
I am linking up with Connie at Freemotion by the River and Quilt Story as I do most weeks I have blocks to share. Both blog hops have pictures of pretty quilt blocks and other projects. I am also joining Work in Progress Wednesday - some colorful and interesting projects there!
