This blog is a showcase of crazy quilting work by the members of the "Crazy Quilting International" Facebook group. Members include stitchers from all over the world. We would love to have you join us - either as a stitcher, or just as an interested viewer. Have a seat and enjoy!
The Spiders 1 Round Robin began when someone mentioned their love of the traditional spider and web motif often seen in vintage - and modern - crazy quilting. Several women chimed in, and this round robin was born. And though many of us find it hard to appreciate the spider, most weavers and other needleworkers can appreciate her intricate, lacy webs. The variety and sheer number of ways these ladies came up with to celebrate spiders and webs is amazing.
The participants were Gerry H., Gerry K, Lauri, Janet, Lindy and Marya.
