2016 Free Boms

Not only did Christine and I see amazing and beautiful vintage linen at Gina's place on Monday, she also showed us some of her crazy quilting blocks.

I was in awe.

I have lots of beads and charms and laces, I've collected over the years - so next year is going to be my year of the crazy quilt.  Tomorrow I'll show you what else is going to contribute to my crazy quilt.  It's so exquisite I could barely breathe when it was given to me.
This site is BRILLIANT
Here's a LINK to 20 seam embellishment ideas.  Its at CQMagOnline.  Enormous thanks to Sharon.


  1. Gosh they are lovely aren't they?! Amazing use of colour in them - very inspiring.

  2. Красивые блоки!

  3. Aren't they lovely. I have wanted to try crazy quilting too but just not sure where to start. Eager to see your inspiration tomorrow.

  6. Good post! We are linking to this great content on our site.

    Look into my web blog ; work at home business opportunity

  7. Those blocks are beautiful. You knew those embellishments would come in handy one day. Maybe I could use up some of my dress fabrics in crazy blocks one day. I love the seam embellishment ideas. They would be nice on felt things.

  8. Ginas work is amazing!! I love crazy quilts, I can't wait for you to start one, I just know it will be beautiful!!

  9. WHOA! Stop right there ladies!! Melody, I think you need to amend your post - I didn't make all those myself! The peacock block is the only one I did - Pam Kellogg did all the others and sent them to me. I could never take the credit for Pam's work!

  10. Beautiful! I've always loved "crazy quilts" and want to make one someday or at least something "crazy" maybe a pillow first. TFS!
