I am often asked what I do with my Crazy Quilting blocks I post here on the blog so I thought it would be a good time to respond to this question.
It had always been my intent to have my crazy quilts “quilted” for wall hangings but until last year I could not find anyone willing to take on the task. I did not feel confident with my machine quilting skills as they are so densely embellished therefore the task seemed daunting to say the least. We are fortunate to have a very talented long arm quilter, Tess who owns Wildflower Quilting Studio on the Sunshine Coast. I approached Tess last year if she would be willing to tackle one of my quilts to see how she found quilting it and whether it would interest her to do more. Luckily she not only quilted my Fall Quilt but she has since quilted another three and is working on a fourth. They are beautiful!
A little about this quilt. I completed my Fall Crazy Quilt in 2014. It consists of four blocks that I created for a silk ribbon embroidery workshop I attended taught by the talented Karen Fraser at Piecemaker’s in Costa Mesa. It was a great workshop and I was delighted with the results. My Fall Crazy Quilt is small measuring 23 inches square.
I have attached photos of the entire quilt above and several close-ups to give you a better visual of the details. Just in case you may be interested in Tess quilting a crazy quilt for you, she can be reached directly via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or through her Facebook page at if you would like to contact her regarding long arm quilting. Thank you Tess for your beautiful quilting.
I will be taking a short vacation returning to posting on Wednesday July 18th. The shop will be closed over this time frame.
