Crazy Quilt Of My Dreams, More Progress






After many days of planning the small center hexagon to place in the center of the large hexagon, I was finally happy with the design. I wanted so much to be able to curve piece the different fabrics around the heart but I just do not have those skills yet so my heart did not come out perfect IMHO but close enough. The bottom photo is a close up of the small pieced hexagon. I photo transferred our favorite photo of "My Sweetie and Me" and placed it inside the heart area and basted it down. The third photo is a close up of this photo. I stitched on a very delicate rose ribbon around the photo of us and added the word "Love". The Lovely Rose Ribbon I bought from Helen Gibb's Booth at the Novi Sewing Show. The second photo is of the completed small hexagon placed in the center of the large hexagon. The top photo is of my new found skill of printing words onto fabric and in color too. Now onto piecing the triangles.

It makes me wish that I knew how to quilt, crazy or otherwise. A very beautiful and loving keepsake.

The center came out really well. Are you itching to stitch on those seams?
