On The Long Arm Today

Actually it was on the long arm yesterday, but this is as far as I got. More quilting today as it's another rainy day.

I decided to quilt this on the frame instead of doing the traditional tying that is frequently used for crazy quilts.

The free motion quilting does not show up too well on the borders when you are looking directly down onto the quilt, but that's O.K. as it's more about the embroidery blocks than the quilting. I'm doing a bit of straight stitching on the inside of some of the crazy quilt blocks to 'tack' them down. I'm using Essential Pro Thread from Connecting threads in a light teal color. Hobbs 80/20 batting----more later.

Your leaf quilting is very pretty - I didn't realize you had these blocks already together but I'm behind on my blog reading as always.

Angie, I'm going through the HeartStrings blog ring and notice the ring code isn't on your site anymore. I can remove you from the ring if you want or you can replace the code OK? Just let me know what you want to do.

I always wondered how a crazy quilt could be quilted. I wonder about embroidery block quilts as well. Great leaf design.

Love it. The border quilting nicely compliments the crazy quilt blocks. :-)
