Crazy Quilted Ring Bearer's Pillow in Progress II

I finished the seam treatments on my ring bearer's pillow and again I am amazed by how starting from a few basic stitches and combining them, the possibilities are endless. This is so refreshing and it feels like an adventure every single time.

It was a little bit of a challenge to take a good picture - the lights and the shiny fabrics kept playing together and teasing me by showing wrinkles that are not really there - but you can get the idea.








The rings are going to be placed on the upper patch of the heart, while the other patch, in cream satin, will be embellished with a garland of silk ribbon roses. I already have the design sketched on paper and the ribbons and flosses lined up for tomorrow.

I still need to decide if I should further embellish the patches... Any advice or criticism would be much appreciated.

With every crazy quilted piece I make, I learn something new. Whether it is about embroidery, whether about myself, I find all the lessons valuable. This time, I realized that while with geometrical forms I do my best and try everything to keep my stitches even, I tend to rebel against evenness with organic shapes.

Nagyon belejöttél ebbe a technikába, s oly szépséges dolgok születnek a fejedből, kezed alól. Gratulálok!

A leveleim email-ben nem tudom átmennek-e hozzád, vagy talán valami más gond van?

Very neatly stitched!

I happened to check your blog today. Beautiful works. I like to see crazy-quilting works by others, but never had the time to try it myself. This crazy-quilt pillow is a good inspiration for me.
