Crazy Quilting, like a lot of things, is about layers. A layer of fabric is covered by a layer of embroidery, which is in turn covered by a layer of embellishments. You can't skimp on the layers.
The block below is a great example. The coloured fabric was pieced onto a stabilizing base (Layer 1). Each of the seams was covered in some way. The upper left diagonal seam and the lower right diagonal seam had a trim tacked to them (Layer 2). The trim was then covered with embroidery(Layer 3) and beading (Layer 4).
In the upper right hand corner, embroidered leaves surround a purple button. In the lower right, a purple ribbon is held down with seed beads.
These layers give depth to the block.
