As many readers know I am going through a clean up and blog decrufting exercise and after 11 writing this blog there is a heck of lot of cruft! Anyway to get to the point in the process I found this tutorial I wrote last year on how to embroider crazy quilt seams. I had totally forgotten about it and of course it has languished in my archives. I figure if I have forgotten about it many of my readers will not find it either.
This tutorial on how to hand embroider crazy quilt seams is a long article that covers how to take a stitch and treat it as a foundation to build up crazy quilt seams. It is fully illustrated with loads of eye candy and became a 17 page pdf file! I gave away at the end but here is a direct link should you want it. You can download this article as PDF and keep it as an ebook on a tablet, or print it out easily. If you find this article useful feel free to print it out and share with a sewing group or friend, or better still share the link to this tutorial on social media etc.
This discovery made me think about some of the other resources I have on this site. If you need to know how to embroider the basic stitches used on crazy quilt seams – or even the basic stitches for surface embroidery, as they are one and the same I have provided free, 12 Surface Stitches for Beginners. The link is a direct PDF download.
Also I have the free modules in my stitchers worksheets which cover the basic stitches with eye candy. They are free and none of my stuff asks you to subscribe to anything – of course I love you to subscribe but you don’t have to, or join this or that. They are a simple give away.

I have this tutorial on my tablet – I must have downloaded it sometime last year – and find it very useful when looking for inspiration to just flick through the pages. It’s great Sharon, thank you. xx
Thank you for your generous spirit, Sharon! I’ve saved the ‘seams’ article…my problem is not so much “how to” as “what to do?” This will stretch me and get me to use my imagination for CQ block seams!
Love the information. I am a very beginner crazy quilter and I look forward to your wisdom.
This is wonderful. I love your instructions and appreciate the sharing.
Thanks for all thoses ideas ….. sometime we just made same stitches over and over. You just remember us that there are more way to use them ….
Thank you, Sharon, for all you do to encourage this beautiful art. Every time I see something, it makes me just want to do better. You are an inspiration!
Thank you so much for lifting these great tutorials to the surface once again…I am going to share the link to this post with my readers, many of whom love making quilted pieces with lots of beaded embellishments. It’s just perfect for them!
I am pleased Cyndi that they are useful
Your knowledge and expertise is profoundly appreciated. We will become better embroiderers, thank you.
Sharon, thanks for sharing such great information, you’re the best!
