This Turkey Crazy Quilt design was created using vintage Civil War replica fabrics. The small motif designs in the fabrics and the color combinations that we used for this sample are stunning. This quilt design can become a perfect addition to all your Thanksgiving family gatherings. Creating Crazy Quilts on an embroidery machine is such an easy technique! The crazy quilt technique has been popular with quilters for years but if aren't a quilter you have probably never tried this amazing technique. If you are a quilter that embroiders as well... you can combine both hobbies into this project. There are a multitude of fabrics to choose from as you can see from the fabrics we chose for this quilt. Mixing different fabrics in a patchwork style makes crazy quilts. There are a few different crazy quilt designs for embroidery machines but the techniques that were used required a lot of steps that involved folding fabric and it took a long time to complete a block. We used a much simpler technique with these designs. The best part about crazy quilts are when they are complete you have a scene with a large icon in the center instead of just a quilt. Our tutorial contains an extensive guide that will demonstrate how to choose your fabrics, create a block and finish the quilt. In the finished wall hanging notice how the bands of fabric continue through the whole design even though they are done in different hoopings.
