Almost to the date, I made a commitment to the Crazy Quilt Journal Project to complete a 6" block each month. I'm happy to say that I completed the exercise with the block above. Now I'm moving to the next phase, which is ensuring that the quilt top is flat, adding the border, batting, backing, false back, then finally tying the quilt together. My intention is to follow the sharon b's method of quilt assembly. It will be a painstaking job but I think the result will be well worth the effort.
I'm considering registering for CQJP2014 but given all that I have learnt in the past year with CQJP2013 I want to work around a theme I think. In 2013, each block was designed around an event that happens in that particular month e.g. April Showers...What's my April block going to be next year? I don't really want to do square blocks, so I need to think of another shape. I like the diamond that Sharon did (see above link) but is it above my pay grade? Also, I ordered Sharon's stencils Crazy Quilt Stencils and can't wait to get them in my hot little hands!
So...while I work on finishing my 2013 crazy quilt journal project, I have some things to think about. The deadline for registration is December 12, 2013, so stay tuned...
Thank you for visiting and enjoy!
