Part III of my Quilting Journey

No more suspense.  My new quilting love is crazy quilting.  There are no rules, no points have to meet, you can use all sorts of fancy fabric, trims, buttons, embroidery and the embellishments – oh my, the embellishments.

Crazy quilting has it all – it can be understated with elegant seam embroidery, it can be glitzy with lots of beads and sequins, and my most favorite version of all, it can be encrusted. 

Encrusted crazy quilting is more of everything!!!  The base fabric shows – barely.  The embellishments are front and center.  My aim is to create an encrusted wall hanging for Valentine’s day of 2009. 

Then who knows what next will capture my interest.  Quilting has so many different aspects.  This is a textile art that can be explored for a lifetime.
