I love the idea of making a crazy quilt and have played around with the technique. But I have never felt especially successful. Have you ever visited Pintangle? I have long admired Sharon's work. I signed up for her encrusted Crazy Quilt class. It took me an entire afternoon to piece my block.
I was trying to avoid that very long straight seam at the top quarter of the piece. Hopefully some fancy stitches will help. I am trying out a few pieces of lace and some braid. What do you think?
At the top left is what appears to be a green striped fabric. It isn't striped but more the texture of grosgrain ribbon. The colors have photographed a different than they appear to the eye.
