    I recently asked for suggestions as what to do with my 3 crazy quilt blocks. Many said they would frame them. Well, I have framed the most elaborate one with lots of raised embellishments in a shadow box. And, I love it!! For now, I have placed it on my piano with our 1961 wedding picture and our recent 50th wedding anniversary picture....I thought it kinda goes along with a nostalgia theme..."Victorian" :) well, maybe not THAT old!!! :) I may decide to hang it on the wall, but for right now, I'm undecided, so will wait until the light bulb goes on!! Thanks for all your suggestions/help.

    How beautiful! It is always fasinating to me to look at all the stitches on a crazy quilt.

    That's a marvelous idea. You have it fixed just the way it should be. And just think of what interesting stories you can tell folks about where it came from and who made it and when, just as soon as you think of them.

    Several members of my crazy quilting bee have framed blocks. They always look so beautiful. The colors in yours are great. I especially like your good luck spider and web.
