    A few weeks ago I had taken some 1 1/2" strips and started hand weaving them..... pinning as I went along. I knew I wanted to attempt to sew this weaved fabric together but wasn't sure if it could be done. Today I decided to start sewing it using the #29 stitch on my computerized featherweight machine.

    Once I sewed about 1/3 of what I had weaved I decided to take my Accuquilt Go machine and applique dies and cut this crazy patched piece of fabric.

    Attached are photo's of the weaved fabric (part of it) to show you how I did it. This peace is not sewed yet. Also are crazy patchwork of hearts, butterfly, dragon fly, bumble bee, stars, cat and dog.

    I surprise myself when I experiment with fabric. I don't know if anyone has ever taken strips of fabric and weaved it and than sewed it and used it in crazy patchwork appliques but I have. I'm surprised at how good it looks in crazy patchwork appliques.
