Ok, so I’m not actually going crazy in the mental sense…well maybe just a little, but what mom isn’t! In my last post of 2012 I wrote out my goals for 2013, so far I am batting 500. I have been keeping up with A Lovely Year of Finishes. I have done something with my hexies. AND I finally started my first crazy quilt project!
The idea of busting into my precious saved up fabrics for my actual crazy quilt was a bit intimidating, so instead I started with some of my cotton quilting scraps. Here is what I came up with:
Don’t you just love the center Yuwa Japanese print? I got it from Contemporary Cloth!
Now because I want this block to be true practice for my actual crazy quilt, I am doing some embroidery embellishment. Can you see my first little embellishment?
Can’t see it? Here is a close up:
It’s small but it is a start!
I can’t wait to play more with the embroidery and to learn more stitches. I’m hoping this will give me the nudge I need to break into my fancy fabrics (think silks) and get going on my heirloom crazy quilt!
