A few years ago I started a series of quilts I called “Frazzled Fancies”. I take tiny little squares of fancy dressmakers fabrics (silk, velvet, lace, metallic, suiting, linen, etc.) and pile them up and make little decorative squares, about 2″-3″ across. After I make a bunch of these squares, I apply them to a background and embellish them with machine and hand embroidery. Here are some of the wallhangings I have made using this technique.

(P.S. It took me a long time, but I have finally written a book with the instructions of how to make these quilts. My book Frazzled Fancies Quilts is being published in December 2014.)
