Crazy Patch Quilt

Machine Embroidered Crazy Patch Quilt

One of the techniques I enjoy doing the most is ITH crazy patch using stitch and flip method and then embellishing the finished blocks with buttons, beads etc. I saw somewhere that it was silly having all of our treasures hidden away in drawers etc when they can be put on our creations. Some of the buttons on the quilt belonged to my mother and she had them on a knitted top when she was 15. She is now in her late 70's .The crazy quilt in the photo was made a few years ago now from Kenny Kreations crazy patch set. The quilt also appeared on the cover of Australia Machine Embroidery and Textile Art.
I printed the images onto fabric to put into the quilt and also hand painted some of the lace to match the various coloured blocks.
