The prettiest crazy quilt I've seen, was at a quilt show. The lady had taken her wedding dress (it was very old) and then did a quilt plus a wall hanging to match with the dress and fancy embroidery. It was absolutely stunning.
Along with using her wedding dress, she had added a number of embroidered hankies.
Denise, not if you have fancy stitches on your sewing machine. There are so many wonderful sewing machines out there now with all those fancy stitches and then some, that it takes no time at all and looks as good as the hand embroidery!!!
Ah. . . . . but then I'd have to invest in a fancy new machine- and the old Kenmore that my dad bought me as a HS graduation present still works just fine. (BTW that was 24 years ago and it's seen some hard sewing in those 24 years)
