Going Crazy

Next week I will be taking a "Crazy Quilt" workshop.........I have never had a desire to make a crazy quilt but this workshop looks to be lots of fun so I am in. I, of course, will want to do something just a wee bit different so I have decided it will have a "bug" theme. I plan to use a black and white pallet and incorporate some of my doodles.
I have been gathering a few insect fabrics but I wanted some little trims as well, so today, with the help of my printer and a piece of TAP, I printed images, which I then transferred onto twill tape and even a piece of white selvage.
Next I took an image that I printed twice, (the ruler is just for scale)
with some fusible pressed to the wrong side of each and carefully cut out, I was able to create this little double sided moth that can flutter somewhere on the piece.
It will be a nice addition to some of the little metal bits I have collected as well.

Ahh, I took a class a couple of years ago, and I was hooked. Your timing is perfect... Tomorrow, I'm going to do a Pay it forward blog and will be giving away small crazy-quiltable sea shells. They have a hole in them and are easy to stitch onto your project...Keep an eye out.

I love your theme idea for CQ. It will be wonderful. CQ is my first love, and your idea of creating your own trims is great. Enjoy.

Oh, I can hardly wait to see what you do. I love your bugs!!! This are so great.

I will be waiting anxiously to see the piece you make. I have wanted to make a crazy quilt but just not sure how to start. A class sounds like such fun.

Oh I love the direction you are taking. Can't wait to see. So glad your art work will end up on the quilt.

Workshops aren't always about the project...for me, it's about being with my quilting friends, meeting new people, and learning little tips from teachers and students. I know you'll have a great time! Love the theme you picked!
