Crumb Pieced Pillow Top

I didn't get as much stitching time in on my trip as I had planned (except on two very long airplane rides), but there is enough here to show what is happening...

All featherstitch! You've got to click on the picture to see it.
I'm liking the old-timey effect very much....

Looks good - nice balance between the intricate piecing, busy fabric and simple embroidery.

Thank goodness we are allowed to use needle and thread on plane trips again!!!!

A true crazy quilt indeed!! I love the colors. I always imagined this is how it evolved - necessity - before the Victorian ladies in their leisure and affluence added embellishments.

Margaret said...

Lovely! Is it called 'crumb pieced' because the fabric bits are so small?

Judy S. said...

Very pretty, Allie. I can't wait to see it all finished. Hope you went somewhere fun on your very long plane ride!
