Crash Course In Crazy Quilting

Jackie had asked how I attached the fabric to the coin purse in a recent comment. Actually it is sewn down to a foundation fabric (cheap cotton muslin) in a flip and sew fashion. It is easy once you get the hang of it. After that, you sew the front and back together and sew it into the purse frame. The purse frames are sold without any purse attached to them.

Over time I have compiled a crash course in crazy quilitng- list of favorite sites and blogs and I will post those here.
