    Hi, I love your idea. Haven't crocheted in years. It would be fun to unite two hobbies into one. Thank you and yes, I too like yours better than Sewing Daisies. Much more delicate.

    Thanks for the tutorial. I see that the possibilities to combine quilting and crocheting are enormous. Very nice!

    Thanks for sharing, I just recently got back into crochet and I think I'd like to give your technique a try. It's a great combination of quilt and crochet!!1

    Very nice! I thought maybe it was a afghan with what looked like quilt blocks. This was a pleasant surprise. Thanks

    The crochet in this tute is basic, or beginner, and very easy to learn! Very easy. OK, the border is tougher but you could do a basic border instead.

    I am not sure what you mean by 'birth' each one individually but it appears each block was crocheted around completely and then they were attached. The applique stitch, or as many of us know it as the "blanket stitch" takes care of the raveling (or unraveling).

    Some of us know the referenced "applique stitch" as the "blanket stitch". Blanket stitch SEWN around each block then commence with the crocheting.

    This is so cool because it can be a "take and do" project and always have a square or two in purse to work on while waiting in dr. offices, pick up kids, etc., Thank you.

    This is a great idea for the wool suit fabric. Once wouldn't need batting, but a backing fabric of flannel or cotton would help any scratchiness wool would present. Great idea with great pictures and explanation.

    What a great idea. Thank you for the tute. I love your quilt too. Nice work.
    P.S. For those of you that want to brush up or learn crochet - U-tube has great video lessons.

    Tron80: Thank you for showing us that. It's a very pretty quilt and it looks comfortable too. Your quilt is the first I've seen that was crocheted together. What a great idea. I think you could make almost anything that's quilted using your method. The possibilities are endless. Perhaps at some point I'll learn to crochet too.
    The quilt I'm making for my grand niece might like a crocheted border to finish it off. I was already thinking about some sort of ruffled edge treatment so why not?

    I fold the edges inward and bast all around. The top over the batting and the back fold besides. Then i stitch the blanket stich not too far binding the 3 pieces of fabric together. I hope this made sense ..LOL

    Well, when I made the blocks a lot of years ago, neither I known how to crochet or how to sew the pieces!! My mom taught me both crafts.

    You'll do it beautifuly!

    I did the crochet with Perle Cotton Cones Crochet Thread size 8, I don't know "bedspread cotton" but I think the size is similar and both could very much look alike, and the blanket stitch with DMC PEARL embroidery cotton

    Happy crocheting!
