    That is a very interesting quilt but it just looks like a mess to me. That is just my humble opinion so please don't get mad at me.

    When I read your post, I looked at it again. Looks like ALL the stitches on it is hand embroidery. My initial thought was that it was the regular crazy quilting stitches and brocade patches but there's embroidery over top of and through the blocks/stitches. That's a lot of hand work! That's what took the 3000 hours...

    Crazy quilts don't really do it for me, but good on the maker. I can't quite get my head around having $70,000 in 'spare' cash either, but if I did, this wouldn't be how I'd choose to spend it. Each to his/her own I guess.

    Very nice, but way too busy for my taste.

    I'm not crazy about crazy quilts either. If I were to sell a quilt I now know what to charge. Ha, Ha, Ha
