Embroidery with SharonB (It Rhymes!)

As everyone must know by now, SharonB of In a Minute Ago is very generously posting crazy quilt embroidery stitches everyday for one hundred days. I know I won’t have time to work on them everyday but I’m going to try to follow along as best I can and see if I can’t get a couple of UFOs finished (during the reign of the present monarch)!

Detail (detached chain stitches with straight stitches and beads) of a cq wedding collage I started over a year ago…

Thanks, Iblur! You would love crazy quilting! It’s not hard at all and there are lots of really good books available to get you started. I would recommend THE CRAZY QUILT HANDBOOK by Judith Montano (or anything by Judith Montano!). For a more contemporary twist, try CRAZY QUILTING WITH ATTITUDE by Barbara Randle.
