Hello! I am a new quilter. For starters I am finishing up some projects that someone else had started and taking a class to learn to do things right. My new dilema is how to finish a crazy quilt. My mother's quilting group gave her embellished quilting pieces made up of all types of fabrics, includes buttons embroidery, lace etc. and backed with a stiffening fabric. My group said that crazy quilts do not have sashing and because each of the pieces is signed I shouldn't put a backing on it. So I need ideas on how to connect the pieces. I thought I could sew a narrow bias (1/4 inch seam) on the pieces and then butt them up against each other to avoid bulky connections. I then could apply another bias seam cover to the back side to cover the back seams ( by hand). Is this too unorthodox? Got a good idea - please.
