I ❤ crazy quilting & embroidery . . . This little crazy "baroque" is made with a fine velvet, silk "hand dyed", a piece of gold lamé & metallic printed fabric motifs. Embroidery with silk ribbons & red & variegated some different metallic seed beads: size 14 to size 11 for Turkish & others. ~By Carol Lenthall, Dream Stitcher
I ❤ crazy quilting . . . October Block by Carolyn S. Cibik, October 1999. This is the first Block from our 1999-2000 "Bright Hopes" CQ Series Club. This was an extremely fun block to work on, and the themes of the seasons in this Series were beautiful!
I ❤ crazy quilting & ribbon embroidery . . . Southern Cross Crazy's 2012 RR finished. The last block I worked on, was Faye's. I had already done some work on it, & used it as my teaching tool. Alison took it home & added her lovely work. I just needed to work around the beetle & send it on. Here is my work - Silver worked beetle, hand dyed flower motif & the beaded flowers around the beetle, motif & crochet centre. How the block looks all finished, just stunning. ~By Arlene's Blog
