Bordering on Crazy!

Crazy Borders on the birdcage piece I posted a drawing of awhile ago.

It is a slow process as I don't know much about traditional, crazy patch work. I am, however, enjoying and admiring the pictures I have found online and in books. So tedious, intricate and delicate.

The interior is applique while the borders are crazy.
Being able to fly by the seat of my pants with this project is rather appealing (to me).

When the interior and borders are completed, it will be quilted on the longarm. This will prove to be an interesting challenge.

There is much work to be done.

Doesn't everything take like 2 1/2 times longer than you think?

I'll be watching to see how you do the machine quilting after the embroidery. I have been thinking about that idea too but haven't tried it yet. Beads and presser feet don't always mix well!
