Ideas for embroidering crazy quilt seams

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.

crazy quilt seams booklet screenshotThis 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.

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.
