Design Wall Monday Jan. 24, 2011


I needed to start something new. Something that didn't need a great deal of concentration. Something fun! Something different. I needed to be quilting, of course. The bonus of this project is it also involves machine embroidery, another luv of mine. So, this is what I've been up to with Miss Ellie' for the past week.

Here are some close ups of a few of the crazy quilt blocks that I have completed. These are all designs from the Molly Mine website. Totally done in the hoop. Applique and machine embroidery. I'm using some of my Batik fabric stash for the blocks. Each quilt block takes about an hour or more to complete.

There are twenty blocks in this series. I plan to make a wall hanging or table cloth with the finished project using some regular cotton embroidery floss to tie the quilt top.


The Molly Mine machine embroidery website has a series of three Crazy Quilt projects. Beautiful! Linda's digitizing is awesome! These blocks are from the Series one quilt, but do check out the Christmas quilt and Series two. All very tempting!

A special thank you to all of you for the warm and thoughtful emails, cards, phone calls and comments about our sweet Bootsy. It's been a difficult time, but your caring words have helped more than you will ever know.

So glad you're feeling a little better. A creative outlet is so good for the soul. I am excited to see what you do with the crazy quilt blocks!

Beautiful! I don't like doing machine appliqué or embroidery myself but one of these days I'm going to embroider a crazy quilt by hand. I've done a small doll quilt which was fun but I'm not ready for a larger object yet.

Thanks for posting the link. I've looked at blocks like those before and always hesitated. I think I will be doing some shopping today!
