When do you embroider a crazy quilt?
I have been working on piecing a crazy quilt. Now it is completely pieced and my quilt top is complete. I am confused about whether to baste my quilt and then do my embroidery through all the layers, including the batting, or if the embroidery is just for looks and you do it before basting the quilt.
I would love any advice you have.
The embroidery on a crazy quilt block is normally done before you add the backing fabric and/or batting, Lila. (Actually many of the old quilts done in this style did not have batting inside them.)
Embroidery is usually carried out along the seams between each patch, and also can be used in the center of the patches, for decoration.
I hope this helps.
