Still working on the crazy quilt course.
Still not using fabric.
I have one more motif to stitch to finish task #8. It uses padded satin stitch, which is new to me, and bullion stitch, which is not my friend. There is tutorial watching on today’s agenda.
I usually take a break and spend quality time with my sewing machine between tasks. Only four more tasks after this one.
Net Fabric Used: 0
How did you do this week?

The embroidery on your crazy quilt piece is looking great!
Your crazy quilt stitches are amazing! Do you enjoy doing it? I’ve never even heard of some of those stitches, but then I barely embroider.
Love your crazy quilt.
The crazy quilt sampler is looking wonderful! 🙂
When I first saw this project, I wasn’t too sure about the fabric choices. They are all so pale. But now that you are covering it with assorted embroidery stitches, I think it is gorgeous. It is also very creative.

I love how your crazy quilt is progressing!
Your needle choice makes all the difference in the bullion stitch. It needs to be pretty long and the same diameter the whole length. I did manage to find a great YouTube tutorial showing the process as well. Unfortunately I don’t remember whose it was. It was done almost completely differently than any instructions I had seen. But once I did a few of them it went well! I doubt I will ever use it again though! It was perfect for the stamens in a flower.
Your block is looking nice. I’ve gotten to the 11th step, but I keep getting distracted with regular quilting projects.

It looks lovely to me. You’re making me miss my CQ projects.
