20150404_132620Crazy Quilting, Beading, embroidery and Silk Ribbon Embroidery

This time last year I came across some amazing looking embroidery blocks, they were beautiful, misshaped, full, busy and best of all just plain crazy. I fell in love with them instantly. I was then pointed in the direction of an amazing website with online classes where I could learn the techniques needed to create a crazy quilt block. The online class created by Shawkl.com lasted about 8 weeks and was full of wonderful creative people from all over the world. During the class I completed 2 quilt blocks and have gone on to create 2 more.

What do you think about this…?

One of our volunteers came up with an idea to collaborate on a community project to create a blanket or a quilt that tells their story.
