CQ Quilt Panel

 Working on the sides of a crazy quilt. The center was completed a few years ago and my goal is to have a finished Crazy Quilt by the end of the year! 
Crazy Quilts Are Quilts Too Quilt Show --  May 1, 2013! 
Thearica at Pigtails and Quilts will be hosting this show. I am working on my project and have 25 days to finish it.

I think the tatted bunny needs some greenery!!

One strip is completed and this will be the other side.

Nancy Tracy,, has a beautiful cupcake to tat and it looks delicious to eat. It does tat up quickly. I like this pattern as it is totally different than any pattern I have seen and beginner friendly. I have a new student on Thursday and I am sure she will want to tat up a cupcake!! It is so rewarding to see your students complete a project.  The blue cup is 658, Ocean Turquoise; Frosting is 154, Wild Flower Garden; The cherry on top is 671, Christmas Red all done with Lizbeth size 40. I will have to tat one up in size 80 for a smaller version.
The bottom two are tatted Medallions from Nancy Tracy's February newsletter. I added the bead while tatting the center and did not add the outer edge.  Nancy tatted the medallions to her dress for her son's wedding. I am sure it was beautiful.
Here is my new project I was working on while on New York. Very easy and one can tat this anywhere without a pattern. Just need to pay attention to where you are connecting!!  It will take me a year to complete but will be beautiful when the project is finished!! It is all rings, no chains but lots of ends to tie in...ughhh

St Paddies Day

Happy St Patrick's Day to all!  Thanks for stopping by. My 90 year old Mother passed away and I am in Cold, Snowy Morrisville, New York. It is in the upper 80's at home in NM.
I have started a new project and will most likely take me more than a year to finish. When I arrive home next weekend I will post a picture. I also have finished half of a crazy quilt project for the upcoming Crazy Quilt Show on the Internet in May.
Enjoying my grandchildren and family.
