It’s the perfect combination!
a chance to use up scraps!
a chance to practice new stitches!!
no rules! no guides!! no limits!!!
I had some 11 inch square scraps and I just started sewing some scraps on…playing around a bit. I have never done crazy patch on a backing… but I have sewn scraps together before. It’s kind of tricky keeping it all straight and I have a few ” mistakes”, but the embellishing and the embroidery will cover them up. I am kind of experimenting, but I have a great book to refer to and this afternoon I will try out some new embroidery. I have sewn 4 blocks together, now it’s a good size to do some lap quilting. My mom said that her mother worked small projects and did some feather stitching like I am planning to do. I envy my cousin (hello WA cousin!!!) because she got to spend time with our grandmother and learn some stitching…. I wish I could hang out with her and we could work on this together….
