DQ Jan-Feb '14 Challenge - Entries

Here's a look at the 7 lovely entries we had to the DQ Jan-Feb '14 Challenge requiring a finished quilted item using the Crazy Patchwork Style..

Jan-Feb01 - Go Crazy Quilt' 34"X21". A little madness for loads of fun. Hand appliqued letters, hand-hemmed binding, bead work and shisha work. Inspired from the Indian way of crazy quilting that loves to add some bling here and there.

Jan-Feb02 - Wall hanging with crazy quilted panels embellished with a pair of peacocks that are soaking up the blues, greens and purples. Embellishment done in aari stitch with zari that translated means chain stitch in metallics and thread painted. Noted for future - never combine silk fabric and silk thread and metallics unless in a self-punishment mood.

Jan-Feb03 - Crazy Quilted Wall Hanging 22"x 15.5"
Hand and machine embroidery with embellishments.
More than 25 different embroidery stitches.

Jan-Feb04 - Crazy quilted pillow hand embellished with beads and embroidery.

Jan-Feb05 - Flight of Fancy 16"x16" . Started on a whim, late one night, one thing leading to another, clearing the dust from the box of embroidery floss, untouched for almost a decade (whew), a bit of beadwork, some lace and there you have it, 'Flight of Fancy'!

Jan-Feb06A - crazy quilt with desi twist. ( wall hanging)18"x18". The top was stitched first then the warli design was painted with 3d liner and lastly quilted.

Jan-Feb07 - Peacock in a rose garden 43"x43.5". 9 white blocks with crazy quilting, 'roses' are part of the crazy white blocks, peacock and leaves are appliqued on, leaves and border are string quilted. design inspiration - peacock from purchased embroidered sari border (sections of which are in quilted border).

The DQs have voted and the three top favourite entries are

#1 - Go Crazy Quilt
#4 - Crazy Quilted Pillow
#7 - Peacock in a rose garden

We'll be back with the results tomorrow.
