First Crazy Quilt Block

Thanks to the enthusiasm and encouragement of my friend Judy at Apron Strings I completed my first crazy quilt block. It is made with cotton scraps, DMC floss and a crochet flower passed along to me some time ago. The backing is muslin. The next block will be smoother, the stitches better looking and I`ll do some machine embroidery. I learned a lot. This was very relaxing. I have more crazy quilting links in my left sidebar. So thank you Judy! Visit Judy`s blog so you can see her beautiful embellished quilt squares.
Everything is blooming here including my lilacs and rosemary. Pictures on the next post. I have many things going on. Taking on too much at one time and getting nothing accomplished. HA!

Take care and God Bless.

  2. It looks like a fun project. The squares are unique in crazy quilts; hope you continue with the squares and make an entire quilt and show it on your blog.

    Have a good weekend, Cathy.
