Crazy quilting is in my blood now…If you’ve visited my blog since January, that’s no secret to you. I’m currently participating in two round robins and recently received blocks from both to work on. The Brown Study block in my possession belongs to Cris and traveled nearly 9,000 to get from Pam to me. It’s first stop was Australia. The second block…Butterflies and Dragonflies…belongs to Hollie from the Ozarks. I’m first to work on it. I was telling Hollie, being first to work on a block is a big deal to me. It sets the mood of the block. That’s a little exciting and intimidating at the same time. I think any newbie to crazy quilting
(I’m in such amazing crazy quilting company that I still consider myself a newbie.) has an “inner critic” that makes her fear messing up someone else’s beautiful block. Being first strengthens the power of that naughty inner voice. Or maybe that’s just me…
Here is Cris’ Brown Study RR block after Pam C. and before I make my first stitch…Ideas for my work on Cris’ block are running around in my head.
Here is Hollie’s Butterflies and Dragonflies RR block before embellishing begins. The anchor piece is a gorgeous bit of embroidery she rescued from a thrift store. I started working on Hollie’s block last night, but I’ll share that a bit later. My work has just begin.
That’s it for this time around…thank you for looking. Feel free to leave a comment so I know you have been here. Blog company is always such a nice surprise!
Until next time…
And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven you. Ephesians 4:32
