This is the very first crazy quilt project that I completed. A friend showed me a crazy quilt that her sister made for her. It was beautiful! The embroidery and other embellishments amazed me. I had never heard of crazy quilting before I saw her quilt. I made a passing comment that I would like to try it sometime and then out came all my scrap material from all the homecoming and prom dresses that I made for my daughters. Between the two of us we pieced together a square, using what i know now as the "antique method". Once I was done I made it into a pillow.

The bottom right side. The pillow creased and you can't really see the very bottom corner.
The bottom left with a little spider web and spider.
I used this project to try out as many embroidery stitches that I could find. I started searching the internet an discovered Silk Ribbon Embroidery and Brazilian embroidery and I had to try my hand at that.
