Wool Crazy Update


Here is my Wool Crazy as of this morning. My embroidery is a bit primitive but if I took every stitch out that I wasn't happy with it wouldn't have any!! So I've been having fun combining a few simple stitches to try and dress it up a bit.


I saw this lovely quilt at the quilt show I attended recently. I've been drawn more to crazy quilts in recent months now that I've started my wool crazy. I thought the setting was unusual but very appealing.

I love how the maker added a tiny bit of cheddar!! What a rebel!!!

  3. Your Wool Crazy is progressing very nicely. It is prim style, so the stitches are what they are. Are the different appliques all from the book or have you come up with some from other sources?

  15. Your crazy quilt is looking fantastic! The diamond quilt looks like it has a lot of satin in it, or is it just the photo?
