Just a short post to share my newest naked block…
Earlier in the week I spent a couple of hours thrifting and found a lime green silk skirt. It had “crazy quilt” written all over it. I brought it home and cut it into pieces the same day. This afternoon pieces of both the skirt and lining were sewn into my next block. It’s a seven-inch block constructed of silk, cotton, the “wrong side” of a piece of brocade, and even a piece of polyester
(one of my least favorite fabrics, but even it has a place in crazy quilting). As soon as I put the finishing touches on the purple block I was working on before the class I started five or so weeks ago, it is next in line for embellishing.
Putting this block together was less frustrating than any I’ve made so far. Maybe that means I’m getting the hang of it. Not feeling encumbered and overwhelmed while constructing a block definitely makes it more fun. Ooorah.
Here is my naked, green block in all its glory. I can hardly wait to start dolling it up.
Until next time…
But I certify you, brethren, that the gospel which was preached of me is not after man. For I neither received it of man, neither was I taught it, but by the revelation of Jesus Christ. Galatians 1:11-12
