CRAZY QUILTING, Colour Complements A small section of Block #7 in my new CRAZY QUILTING project – Black Butterflies.  I have mentioned previously that I generally work on one medium size crazy quilt project annually.  This year I chose a completely different colour combination from last year in a bold primary colour palette.  You can find all the other posts pertaining to this project under “Black Butterflies” in the right sidebar under Categories.

I started the seam treatment on the lower left with a base of feather stitch in perle cotton.  I carried the seam up as there was such a small section that I thought it best.  I added detached chain stitches using flat ribbon – you could easily substitute Kreinik 1/16” ribbon here.  I added bugle beads to finish it.

I picked up the bee charms ages ago and have been wanting to use them for so long – this seemed like a great place to add them AND fill in a naked yellow area.

The flower in the lower left was tacked in place using perle cotton along the petals with a brad center.

More of this block coming on Wednesday.
