As you can see, no colour theme here but I intend to use it as a sampler. It's about 30 cm square ( 12 x 12 inches). The next step is to hand embroider the seams and embellish with beads, lace, ribbons etc or whatever seems to fit. That's unless I give in and do some decorating of the house instead lol.
If you've never seen Crazy Quilting before- here is an example:
By way of interest - a few months back, I came across these little dresses (would fit a 3 year old) in a little shop that was closing down.
I couldn't believe the detail that had gone into making them and were only £2 each so I bought them with the view that some day I might be able to incorporate some of the beads or decoration into something I was making.
Here are some close ups of the decoration.
Those little pink raised areas round the silver beads are actually tightly coiled very fine wire. They must take hours to put together.
Again on this one the silver straight lines are tightly coiled wire. So much skill.
