Crazy Quilting – Trim & Stitches

Posted by lori . 11 Comments


This summer, I’m participating in a few classes offered by Artful Gathering.  During the first session, I’m taking Crazy Quilting 101.  I did my piecing last week.  This week, I added trim and embroidery stitches.

I added two pieces of trim.

A sequined applique.

And a piece of lace with bead detail.


Then, I added my embroidery stitches.

A herringbone stitch.

A chevron and lazy daisy stitch.

And a feather stitch.

Next week, I’ll add silk ribbon flowers, beading and embellishments.

Daily Inspiration


It is important that students bring a certain ragamuffin, barefoot irreverence to their studies; they are not here to worship what is known, but to question it.

    Oh Lori, that is absolutely beautiful! I am in total envy! That is already gorgeous — I can’t wait to see what it looks like when you get it done!

    So beautiful! Thanks for the inspiration. Who is the beautiful woman in the picture?

      The picture of the lady (transferred to fabric) came in the kit I purchased for the class. That’s a good question. I assume she’s from old advertising art. Your question has inspired me. Wouldn’t it be wonderful to do this with a family picture? That would be a true keepsake. Thanks, Kirsten!

  • I always appreciate your comments on my blog. I poke around yours, but I’m not a creative artsy type so I never know what to say. But I love Daisies! 🙂

  • Oh Lori, that is just gorgeous!
    You definitely have a flair for crafting.
    I am taking a leaf out of your book of trying online classes. I saw one on Craftsy for sewing called the Sassy Librarian Blouse and loved it. I think my dressmaking could use the advice, LOL, so I am going to enrol when I finish the dress and top I am making.

      I love online classes. I must say though, if I didn’t have a blog, I probably wouldn’t be as good about completing them. That’s why I love sharing what I’m doing and my progress. It keeps me motivated. I’m a horrible procrastinator. I can’t wait to see the posts about your dressmaking adventures.
