    Crazy Patch was made with some samples of upholstery material and the stitching was all done by hand. It took 3 months to do the handwork.

    I love it! I didn't realize upholstery came in such beautiful colors. What will you do with the final product?

    It is beautiful, have tried crazy quilt before but couldn't seem to get it going. Embroidery is very nice.

    I am interested in the process also. Did you machine stitch the pieces to a foundation then do the hand embroidery work? Do you have a backing to finish it? How are the edges finished?
