I'm Finished With Crazy Cravings!


Crazy Cravings
50 x 62
It's definitely not your grandma's crazy quilt.


The 12 inch blocks were all hand pieced, embroidered, embellished. 
Then sewn together by machine. 
Then the seams were embellished.


I think normally crazy quilts are tied; however, I added batting and backing and then kind of free form hand quilted it with #10 crochet thread. 


I do love chocolate. 


And now I can cover myself in chocolate. 


This was fun to work on. I think it's been in the works for a couple of years. 


I like handwork and embroidery so a crazy quilt is a great way to mix the two...





...and end up with something yummy!

Now this is a fun quilt! Wow, I love all the stitching you did both embroidery and quilting! Who would have thought that a "chocolate covered quilt" would be such a wonderful thing to have!
