    Beautiful!! I love crazy quilting one of the main reasons I wanted to start quilting. I have been collecting a stash of fancy fabrics, and I bead so have lots to embellish with. But as with most of my projects, there's always someone else I make for first, so "my" crazy quilt will have to wait... but that's ok, gives me more time to build that stash. I have velvets, brocades, satins, silks, laces, ... can't wait. And I have been practicing my ribbon embroidery, love making little roses.... oh, it just makes me so excited just thinking about it!!! I just LOVE your pix and will check out your flicker site. Thanks so much for sharing!

    Love them all - especially the pansy angel. My sis has a guest pansy bathroom - hand-painted border, cross stitched switchplate, pictures, crocheted doily on a table, etc, but no crazy quilt - gives me an idea for a small scale birthday gift - I could frame it. Thanks for sharing your work.

    I agree, love your work and I too have been collecting a stash. I have a miniature magazine somewhere in my room that has a paper piecing page for a small crazy patch quilt about the size or a bit bigger than your postcard. I was just thinking about that the other night and wondered where I had put it and now you have posted crazy patch and I really want to do it now!! Wish me luck in finding it!

    Did you stain or paint your angel in the pansy patch? Looks good!!

    Yes, I too have a huge stash of fabrics...not just fancies. When I took a class for Judith Baker Montano, I learned the value of crazy quilts with cottens also!!!!

    Do you embellish the block before or after you add the batting? I figured you would not want all the stitches showing on the backing. I'll do a search and checkout all the ways it could be done. Your's is so beautiful, I wanted to know how you do it! Thanks.

    First cq always use a foundation piece to lay the fabric on...then we do all the emblishing from stitches to beads, buttons, etc. Batting is rarely used at all, depends on the project. Once the item is done, it is backed with usually a solid piece of fabric which then hides all the backside stitches. When I make Christmas stockings, I will use batting to give them a puffy look, then I will add the lining afterwards to hide the backside.
    Does this make sense?

    Yes I went to your site they are all amazing to me. I am fascinated by crazy quilts .. I have one block started just the material sewed to the muslin (sp) I am using blue jean centers and other materials around it... not near as fancy as yours. But my twist to them. I have not gotten to the fancy stitches around the seams by any means. But you do inspire me.
