CQ is not hard, it is overwhelming when one starts for the first time. Take your time and do the stitches that you are comfortable with. Practise on a CQ that can be your testing, experimenting piece. Pretty soon you'll find out how…"

Hi. Has anyone done the stitching on a crazy quilt? Is it hard? I may have the opportunity to do the CQ stitching and I've never done one. I do embroider and do models for an online designer but so far, nothing like a CQ. I have bought a really nice book of stitches and am thinking of doing a sample piece to have to show to the quilter. Thanks for any feedback. BrendaSee More

Where did you learn your textile skills?
I am mostly self taught but grew up playing under a quilting frame hanging from the ceiling. My Mom quilted, crocheted here whole life. She could look at a dress and make a pattern and designed her own patterns for crocheting clothes for Barbie and Ken. I did not inherit her talent for design but I did her love of working with her hand.
Let us know you are not a spammer. Is there anything else you want to say to introduce yourself to the group?
I am 56, married over 25 years to a great guy, I have 3 kids and 7 granddaughter who I adore. I worked in a cross stitch/custom framing shop for over 9 1/2 years until it closed this month. I do model stitching for an online embroidery/quilt designer and I have my own business.......slow and small right now.
