Framed Crazy Quilt

When I was young, I really liked a green color. Although now I'm grown up and falling in love with pink, I still like it. Here I selected the green as a main color for my first crazy quilt. I have done some embroidery stitches with various colors and added some embellishments.

Before finishing, I used a small calligraphy brush soaked with water to remove the stitch outline.

There still are some spaces, so I added a little bear and a button.

I'd like to put this into a frame, but unfortunately it cannot fit to a standard photo frame commonly available in the market. The dimension of my crazy quilt is 20x20 cm. Now, I have a good reason why a woman should not be single. I asked my husband to do a wooden frame for me, and he said "OK". He seemed to enjoy while making it.

Finally, I can have my first crazy quilt in a white frame embellished with watashi tape. It's so lovely.

  3. Love, love, love the crazy quilt. It's lovely and the stitching is gorgeous. I wish we lived closer so you could show me how to do it.....

  4. How pretty your stitching is! I like how the tape on the frame accents your quilt.
