After the backing has been added to a crazy quilt, the next step is to simply tack it to secure the layers.
This sounds great in theory. After all the work of adding so many embellishments, you may be done with it and just want to finish it off so you can show it off and/or move on to your next quilt.
However, for me, it is a big pivot to move from maximalist, everything goes, to minimalist tacking stitches. I am not anywhere near tired of the quilt.
2021: Week 26 of 15 Minutes to Stitch
Besides, you can make the argument that it isn't really a crazy quilt. I think the fact that it doesn't fit the rules of crazy quilting makes it even more crazy.
I put the free motion quilting foot on, and did some doodle stitching. Then I got out some stencils I got from a magazine subscription, and I quilted some motifs. It is a light color thread so the effect is very subtle.
I spent the week quilting the Quote Quilt and resisting the urge to start other quilts.
