C-C- Crazy Patchwork

During the last week, I have been preparing some items featuring crazy patchwork for demonstrations and workshops. I prefer to keep mine simple, and not add everything and the kitchen sink. However, embellishments that can be used are very varied -  I use both new and re-cycled fabrics, and invariably, vintage decorations.

In blue - ( I have been having a "Blue Period")

......and two examples of machine embroidered crazy patchwork...

...and a larger piece worked in silks, satins and velvets......

I only spend about two hours at a stretch doing the stitches, as much longer makes your eyes go doolally.
It's very enjoyable though, relaxing, and potentially addictive!
Hope you like them!
