Art quilt and crazy quilt embellished....

I took out some embroidery and sewed down this turquoise velvet ribbon instead.

Braided Trim and tape measure trim on the pocket.

 I had a bit of time to sew trims on my crazy quilt, "Prairie" #3 sewing kit, the layering process has begun.
I also added hand embroidery to my art quilt, "Tropical
Punch", you can see that below.
Stop by Pintangle for inspiration and to see progress other artists have made on their projects.

More trim added here on left of needle keep.
I'm embellishing my art quilt "Tropical Punch" with embroidery here.

Turquoise and orange embroidery, cross stitch, french knots.


  1. I really don't know which I like better - the more subtle colourway of the sewing kit or the saturated ones in the tropical piece. I tend to work with more with jewel tones which are in my comfort zone and no matter what I don't seem to be able to work with the colours in your sewing kit, despite really wanting to.

    1. Thank you, my color wheel is one of my best friends.

  2. Turquoise and orange look so nice together.

  3. I just love your sewing kit! I have a hard time working with the colors in your "Tropical Punch" art quilt. You make it look so easy. It is so bright and cheerful. I look forward to seeing it completed!
