Crazy Quilts on an embroidery machine? Yes! The crazy quilt technique has been popular with quilters for years but if you aren't a quilter you have probably never tried this amazing technique. If you are a quilter that embroiders as well you can combine both hobbies into this project.
Crazy quilts are made by mixing different fabrics in a patchwork style. Simply lay a piece of fabric down in your hoop, it is tacked down with a stitch and then you trim it. You are probably asking, wouldn't that leave a raw edge? The answer is simple, of course. When the pieces are all cut for the block we go over all of the raw edges with a large motif stitch. The motif stitch covers the edge and eliminates the need for any folding. You will love this technique. This tutorial contains an extensive guide that will demonstrate how to choose your fabrics, create a block and finish the quilt.
