Project Quilting: Challenge 5

Challenge 5 of Project Quilting is themed on the historical crazy quilt concept. These quilts were for decoration instead of being used as bed coverings. They featured rich, luscious fine fabrics with fancy stitching, and other embellishments. This is my project, a 10" square candle mat. The fabrics are from Barbara Brackman's exquisite collection Earthly Paradise, which I won a few years ago. 'Already made a rail fence quilt and a braided table runner, so these remnants worked perfectly for this project. A machine-sewn feather stitch of mustard-colored thread was used on all of the patchwork seams. Sending thanks Kim for this fun and really educational Challenge!
