Crazy Quilt Challenge


Beginning on January The Crazy Quilt Journal Project will begin. For more information you can click on the sidebar button. Every month we are to complete a block and at the end of the year it will be put together. To help with our seam treatment, Sharon B's at Pintangle will have instructions on "Take a stitch on Tuesday". Her button "Tast" is on the side bar.  I have decided to embroider flowers that was a block of the month from Sentimental Stitches. Still need to finish 6 more blocks. The blocks will be sashed with the lady bug material. Yesterday I purchased leaf material and bird material. My goal is to have the leaf material over hang on the top, with possible leaves cut out and the birds appliqued on.
My first Block....

Flag Block


The International Crazy Quilting Group are putting together flag blocks from countries around the world. I have chosen the United States and there are over 22 more flag blocks. It will be put together as one big quilt and sent to our  CQ Sister, Hideko. Hideko will enter them in Japan Quilt Shows and will be sold. The funds will help the victims of the Sendai Earthquake. I have lots of crazy quilt stitches, silk ribbon and a tatted eagle. Pattern from Nancy Tracy.
