Last week I finished a work in progress I started in June. It is the first crazy quilt block I embellished using lots of lace. Another thing I tried for the first time with this block is beading seam treatments I learned from reading Nancy Eha’s excellent beading books. (More about her books later.) I put the block aside when round robin blocks and one-on-one swaps took priority, and I picked it up again when all my work on other people’s blocks was completed. I learned a good bit with this one and will be using lace and bead seam treatments often in future blocks.
During the year of 2013 I’m participating in the Crazy Quilt Journal Project. By the time I got interested in crazy quilting this year the project had already begun. I looked on in wistful awe. 2013 will be a busy crazy quilting year between the journal project and the round robins I plan on participating in. I’m looking forward to it!
Until next time…
Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. Philippians 4:8
