The last day of February rolled around yesterday. I made my final stitches on my Crazy Quilt Journal Project 2013 February block just a couple of hours before March rolled in. My theme is monochromatic blocks…twelve blocks, twelve colors. Purple was the color for February. February is “heart month”, and there is no nobler heart than a purple heart.
All my stitching on this block is free form so it is less than perfect…just like me. :) Though I am tempted to use templates to make each stitch uniform, I have resisted.
I am sharing several pictures…some close-ups so you can see the detail better.
Left upper corner: A button cluster with a dyed Venice lace motif and assorted beads highlights the left upper corner. This block is my first piece to use the Victorian Fringe stitch as a seam treatment. I love the look and will definitely use the stitch again.
Upper Right Corner: The flower sequins are shades of purple. They look pink in the pictures, but they are not.
Lower Left Corner: I used this block to practice my vine-stitching technique, so all quadrants feature one.
Lower Right Corner: Trees are beginning to bud and bloom in Southeast Mississippi and the right corner seemed the perfect place for a budding tree.
Center: My husband thought my spider was a fly…:)
Thank you for looking. Your comments are most welcome.
Until next time…
And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away. Revelation 21:4
