I haven't done the text printing on the backing sheet as I am having trouble with the computer that the printer I need is attached to. I finished the page with a pillowcase backing and slipped the Timtex stiffening sheet inside. The backing information will be buttoned onto the back. One of the things I am happiest with on this page is that it was done without buying anything new! The velvets came from my Granny's stash and the beads, laces, ribbons, buttons, embroidery thread and the tuppence came from either my stash or my Mom's stash.

Your CQ is gorgeous; so rich looking, and I love the bright colors. Especially great that you did it with what you had on hand. Are you hooked?

Oh my, I don't think I've seen anything so beautiful.Do you teach? If not you should.I could do something like that if I could get away from my quilting.Patience is the key.

I do hope you continue with more crazy quilting! I think your circle block would be cool with seam treatments. . .

It really turned out beautiful. I think crazy quilting is the perfect summertime project. Portable, not too hot to handle. It's beautiful. Great job Suze!
