About a year and a half ago, I became completely fascinated with Victorian Samplers and Crazy Quilts. I wanted to make a quilt! Did, my research, started gathering fabrics, when the idea struck me...
What if I did a Needlepoint Crazy Quilt Square??? I started sketching and playing around with the lay-out and what it would look like. In February I finally painted the Canvas:
|Painted Canvas KCA 011-18|
I just loved the painted piece! There are soooo many possibilities here!
THAT IS 3 WEEKS from NOW!!!! And I have a TNNA Market in 2WEEKS!!!
Change status to URGENT!
I have been stitching alot on the piece, and here is where we are at:
Once all of the backgrounds are done, it will be time to start the CRAZY EMBELLISHING!!!!! I am planning Silk Ribbon Work for the two floral elements. Will be adding some Stumpwork and some Applique, Beading and Silk Embroidery. I will post some more pics as Embellishment unfolds!
|Most all of the Backgrounds are Stitched! Just upper left Brown|
& Black Sections to finish...and the Black around the Pansies!
If you are interested in stitching this piece, it will be available to your LNS in January.
If you are anywhere close to the Houston, Texas area, call the Needle House to sign up!
The first Class is Thursday, June 23rd.
Oh, by the way, On my very first Blog Post, I got the dates of the Halloween Class wrong!
