    What an amazing quilt! You have outdone yourself sistah! One thing I love about it is that it would go in any room and look dazzling! I agree with all the other ladies on this board, you have created a work of art!

    That is a beautiful quilt! You can see how much love and time you put into it with all the different stitching and fabrics. I love the "crazy" binding. A small touch that sets off the finished quilt. Congratulations on finishing it. I'm sure your daughter will love it.

    Good job. The embroidery really adds to it but what a lot of work. Your daughter will love it.

    Thank you everyone for your kind comments. I did enjoy making it, I learned a great deal about Crazy Patch, about some of the stitches on my Bernina, and how to use the Bernie better. And I will now part with the quilt, and I don't know if I would have the patience to make another one, but i sure would like to have one.

    that is an awsome quilt, did you embroider this after the batting and backing went on or did you embroider the blocks?

    I did foundation piecing onto muslin, did the embroidery, then pieced the quilt, sandwiched and tied the squares sitting at the kitchen table watching 4 versions of Criminal Minds (by the way watching more than one of these is way too many), then quilting in the sashing and did SID around the squares, then used adding machine tape to make the inner border, quilted the borders with stippling, then made the binding by sewing together random sizes of batik strips, then cut that into strips, and sewed them together to get my 400+inches of binding. I got wiser with the pillow shams and did the tying with using the machine and doing bartacks. much faster for the smaller pillow shams. Would have been cumbersome to do the whole quilt that way.. Once again, thank you everyone for your kind words.

    It is beautiful --- the work is fantastic. If she doesn't like it you can mail it to me.
