Once put my Maximalist quilt on my bulletin board, I knew it was missing something. A quilt named Maximalist needs to be, well Maximal. So I decided to add some gray on the other side. I decided to make a big yo-yo and pinch in the sides to make some dimension, like flower petals. I had some trim for the inspirational crazy quilt, and thought that would be a good center for the flower.
Here's what it looks like now. I guess it is done for now.
For the inspirational quote crazy quilt, I focused on this quote. The ink uses a fine tip marker, and it is probably okay, but I was worried that it may not hold up. My fine tip fabric marker is out of ink, so I decided to outline it using one strand of floss. It is a long quote so it took all week to do one quote. I will be buying another marker so I can reinforce the other quotes quicker. By the way, the shadow under the quote is not a stain, it is the maximalist quilt.

I worked on the inspirational quote crazy quilt this week. I also added a flower to the Maximalist quilt. I took my Opal sewing machine to be repaired, and bought some embellishments for the crazy quilt. I have found some motifs I want to add to the crazy quilt and chose where I want to put them.
