Now I have just the needle book cover to make and I will have all the parts of my sewing hussif embellished and ready to assemble. I will have nearly done my mini challenge.

crazy quilt sewing caddy detail 7 For now however I will share some eye candy as the feedback I get on that tells me people enjoy it.

The first detail I would like to share is a trail of beads that cover a seam.

The next is a floral spray made with silk ribbon embroidery and of course I used my crazy quilt templates to mark out the stems.

The next detail illustrates another example of my templates in use as the scallops were traced then embroidered using stem stitch worked in a bright pink silk thread. The heart shapes are sequins secured with a seed bead.

  1. Sharon, your hussif is gorgeous. I finally got back to my “First American Woman” CQ. Here is the newest block.
    I started a CQ when the Take it Further challenge was run on this your blog. I kept making blocks, and entered the quilt in my guild’s show last weekend. Blue Ribbon! Sharon, thanks for doing the Take It Further challenge

  2. Your Hussif, in those lovely jewel tones, is achingly beautiful! I really need a Hussif, but need to be working instead on a private commission CQ quilt. It is in cream colors, so your lovely Hussif is so refreshing to my eyes!! Beautiful is such an inadequate word!! Xxx

    1. Hi Cathy thanks – I know what you mean about working in one colour and wanting to look at something else. One of the reasons the hussif is so bright is because I had just done a quilt (not yet assembled) in muted tones

  3. What a coincidence. I have just finished embroidering a Hussif and in the instructions I need something called “Templastic” to give it the round shape. Here in Spain I haven’t been able to find it but I am going to a craft fair in October in Toulouse, France and I will try there. Do you use this in the making up of your hussif or do you use something else?
    Can you help me?
    Thank you,
