I found a lovely shop/blog and to celebrate her 100th post, the owner is giving away a pretty amazing package of fabrics, trims, threads, and other yummies. My inner bird wants to take it all and make the world’s shiniest and best nest.
I really had never thought about crazy quilting until I saw a gorgeous beaded stalk of wheat embroidered on some gold silk. I still think I’m more likely to use embroidered squares for other, smaller projects (I’ve got one in the works which hopefully will turn out well and be shared with you soon), but patching pieces together could make for something really interesting.
Be sure to enter the contest if you’re interested, and check out the blog, Crazy By Design.
