I’ve been doing some small blackwork motifs as well, with the idea of mounting them on crazy quilt blocks as well. Here are some of those pieces.
I haven’t yet decided exactly how I’ll mount these and the other small motifs on the crazy quilt blocks, but when I do, there will, of course, be pictures. I’m also thinking about doing another large blackwork piece, but I haven’t decided yet what form that will take.
I decided to add the blackwork heart to my crazy quilt project. I sewed four of my crazy quilt blocks together, and mounted the heart in the middle. Then I embellished some of the surrounding seams. I haven’t decided yet whether I will do more embellishing on this block set.
Here are closeup images of the sections of the blackwork heart sampler.
I’ve also been very into blackwork lately, and made a heart-shaped sampler of different fill stitches.
This is what the whole heart looks like.
