Another crazy quilt! Looking forward to seeing this one develop. Did you wind up tying your other one or quilting it?
HawkFan I couldn't find a quilter to take it, so I'm going to have to tie it. That's on my list of things to do.
Ultimately I think tying it is the best option although it means more work for you
HawkFan I usually feel like tying a quilt is cheating. Quilts, should be quilted, afterall. But from some of the research I've been doing, it appears that lots of crazy quilts were tied. And that makes it more historically accurate.
You are correct about crazy quilts being tied. Many of them were so thick because of all the velvets, silks, and wool used. Also most were foundation pieced which added more fabric. The embroidery stitches looked better if there was minimal quilting and it was all about the embellishments. Tying this beauty would be a great choice for your project. Very pretty!
I've been keeping up with this on IG- love seeing how it's coming along- really great!
