Work in Progress Wednesday: Lace crazy quilt block 32

Crazy quilt block 32It took me some time but I would like to share another completed crazy quilt block for my lace quilt.

If you click on the block you will see a larger version of the photo.

All the lace on it is vintage lace I was given “towards my next quilt” and I wrote about it here.

You will find all the other blocks in this series the Lace Quilt category

I thought I would share a few of the details as I know people like the eye candy.

Crazy quilt block 32 detail 1

This vine is made of french knots worked in a stranded cotton floss.  The vintage lace trim was covered with beads.

Crazy quilt block 32 detail 2This is buttonholed herringbone and woven detached chain stitches which I was reminded of when I posted them as challenge stitches for TAST. (See the Take a stitch Tuesday challenge does me good too!)

Just a quick reminder – Online classes available 

I have two online classes that are currently available.

Follow the links for further details, a requirements list and to book a place. If you are not sure how an online class runs visit this page for a description of how classes are run online.

    Another gorgeous block, thanks for sharing the details. I like the combo of beaded Hedebo and woven detached chain.

    Hi Sharon,
    This is the first time I participate in WIP Wednesday. I decided to start to finish a little bouquet. My progress is here: http://threads-and-patches.blogspot.com/2013/04/wip-wednesday-ribbon-bouquet-part-i.html

    Your vines with grapes are gorgeous. I haven’t tried the woven detached chain stitches yet, but I will on my crazy fall quilt.
