Templates from Carol Samples
This is a post for my crazy quilt friends…. I am bursting with excitement because last week I received my Carol Samples templates in the mail. I have spent a few days since getting it all organized into a notebook along with her instructions and some notes I have been making as well as some drawings of my own.
I purchased her book, Treasury of Crazy Quilt Stitches and I was so delighted with it that I just had to have her templates to further enhance my embellishing capabilities.
For those non-crazy quilters…. Carol Samples wrote a book that shows hundreds of stitch combinations so that anyone wanting to embellish a crazy quilt block will have absolutely no trouble at all finding stitches that will work for them. The templates are used as a guide to mark the fabric and then you basically connect the dots… ok, there may be a bit more to it, but that’s the general idea.
So I’m one happy camper now that I can easily thumb through Carol’s book when my creative energy needs a little jump start. Thanks Carol for all your help and for your creative geniusness! Carol suggested to me that I stitch a little bit every day… I am trying to do that so I can watch my work improve.
