Here are the pictures I found of my friends crazy patch quilt. She makes many of these and gives them away. She is currently working on one for herself.I warn you, get a tissue for drooling.
Some close ups.
She always adds a spider or bug on her crazy patch quilts. She says they were a symbol of good luck. The web may be hard to see but it is above the spider.
AAAAAWWWHHH! How cute is that heart. The words in the upper left corner say "Love is a Rose". I also love the lace butterfly.
The fabric in the upper right corner was already machine embroidered that way. I love the lace trimming.
Check out on the right, the grape clusters made of sew on beads. More silk leaves and vintage photo printing. The bird in the middle was already on a piece of velvet fabric. She is always collecting bits and pieces of velvet and satin and silks. It amazes me the way she comes up with all the ideas to embroider and the ways to add trim. Just beautiful. I think the ladies of the Victorian era would have loved this quilt and thought it worthy of display.
Hope you enjoyed looking at my friends crazy quilt.
Quilt til your arm falls off...
