My medium dusty crazy quilting journey is complete and what a journey it has been! I generally plan on stitching one crazy quilt project annually as most of these projects are larger wall quilts. This extended past a year but must admit it has been the most enjoyable project I have worked on to date. Why? It was a departure from any previous colour scheme I have completed and yes, my favourite to date. The fabric came from my collection with the addition of some beautiful samples from a very special shop in Vermont, Delectable Mountain Cloth. If I am ever in Vermont again I plan to visit this shop! The owner creates lovely crazy quilting packs.
I decided on this project following a workshop with Judith Baker Montano in La Veta I attended a few years ago. Jude always shares all of her completed quilts which are so inspiring. Since I had completed a Dark Dusty the year before I chose a medium dusty and WOW, am I glad I did! As I mentioned, my favourite colour scheme to date 🙂
There are a total of nine blocks measuring 10 1/2″ square. They are sewn together and I am in the process of deciding on borders etc.
This section is one of my favourites, silk ribbon French knots, cheater roses, leaf stitches and ribbonwork flowers. I have also added some buds using my previously stocked viscose tubular ribbon. I added some silk perle French knots to fill in some areas.
YES, I will be showing the completed project once it has the borders added and it is quilted. I am deciding how best to finish it so please don’t expect this soon! I am at the “idea” stage currently.
That’s it for this week. I’ll be taking a short blog break returning to blogging later next week. The SHOP remains open. Until then…..
