    CRAZY QUILTING EYE CANDY! WoW!

    Look at this woman's CQ skills! Talk about devotion to her skills ! Title: All Creatures Large and Small http://alliesinstitches.blogspot.com/ It's jaw dropping! I actually think I have her book in my stash of quilters books. I need to go on the HUNT!

    I just bookmarked her site. She is awesome! What gorgeous, meticulous work. Not sure I'd have that kind of persistence!

    Please note that the site linked to, the blog on which you see this quilt, is NOT the site of the maker of this amazing quilt.

    The blog's author has taken photos of the crazy quilt without the maker's permission (she admits this herself), and posts them "for the pleasure and instruction of other crazy quilters."

    Personally I find this brazen and presumptuous and would be quite upset if it were MY quilt she was "highjacking", despite the fact that I also enjoyed seeing this crazy quilt up close and personal.

    That said, the work of the quilt maker is truly spectacular and worthy of the finest examples of the original crazy quilts of 100 years ago. It is stunning! I'd adore to see it in real time.

    That crazy quilt is just amazing and even more so when you realize it was all hand done, no machine work at all.

    WOW, Thanks for the wonderful link. I was lost for long time just looking at everything this girl does. Glad to see her sewing room looks like mine--always a mess. I bookmarked her site it is so interestin
    Jan, several blogs that I visit have the pics of "All Creatures Large and Small". I don't think anyone else is trying to take credit for it. They are just amazed at the beautiful crazy quilting.

    Wow! I wish I could say that inspired me, but it just made me tired....I can't imagine the time she spent making that. It's beautiful, and definitely eye candy. Thanks for sharing.

    I do agree I felt a bit overwhelmed when I saw the intricacies of her work, but it didn't take away from the beauty for me! I loved every photo I saw there. I love CQing! I have not done it yet, but it just speaks to me BIG TIME! I have used my jewelry making supplies on my quilts for embellishing, but not launched into a full blown CQ project. I think the key would be to start small?

    Jemma..
    Thank you! I opened the website you shared and pinned it to my PINTEREST site. Looks good!

    the animals seemed to be machine embroidered! Jan were they? If so, it cheapens the whole thing to me..if not...the woman needs therapy..oh wait..this might be her therapy..WOW..

    Not sure why machine embroidery would "cheapen" anything but if you read the description, it clearly states the entire quilt was made by hand, including the animals. It's a beautiful work of art!

    What spectacular work! Thanks for posting this link, I could spent hours looking at all the stitches she used... and the fabrics! I would love to see one of her works in person.
