Treasure box finished










You may remember the treasure box I started several weeks ago. After lots of paint and crazy quilting it is finished. I painted it a sage green, with a purple stripe with white polka dots. The feet have polka dots too. The inside is lined in a purple felt. The top turned out nicely with crazy quilting, ribbon embroidery, beading, some lace from 1920's France and a precious little girl who I stuffed higher than the rest of the quilt. I think the young lady will like it. I plan to have a little surprise in the box.

SUPER adorable - awesome job! Very detailed and absolutely precious. Is that paper or material on top? Love the polka dots!! You are very talented. Sorry to hear about your dining room table being lost to crafting supplies too ;)

Hi Cheri, The top is material, different pcs. sewn together to create a crazy quilt, then different stitches, silk ribbon embroidery and charms were added. I found the top of the table last night. So there is hope!!!LOL

Sharon - I just found your blog and I'm SO GLAD I did! I LOVE crazy quilting and your blog is so inspirational! I'll be following you closely from now on!! I really like the idea of putting a crazy quilted piece on top of a treasure box! I have many boxes (one of my passions) and I have some crazy quilted pieces I didn't know quite what to do with. But now - problem solved! Thanks so much for sharing your lovely art!
