So here's the little stack of crazy quilt blocks I assembled this a.m.-- including thread auditioned for the first one I'm going to embroider, featuring the Take-A-Stitch-(on a)-Tuesday stitch for Week 18, the Crossed Buttonhole:
Aren't they pretty? They took almost 2 hours to put together (not counting cutting up 4 men's ties, which I did yesterday) -- largely because of the challenge of picking off-setting fabric, deciding what shapes to cut, etc. -- but it's all part of the crazy process. :-)
Oh, and here's the finished Wheat Ear block (Week 17 of TAST) that I'm submitting to the Crazy Quilt Journal Project for my May sample:
|WOW! Wheat Ear!|
I love the crazy patch blocks! I have those on my someday to do list, but it seems like it gets longer all the time. :) And those ears of wheat are amazing!
There is something about crazy patch blocks,isn't there! Nice stitching.
The wheat ear block is fantastic, love the thread color, and the stitching looks great.
I love crazy quilts and have made a few in years past, but not recently, I really like the collecting of fancy fabrics and the embroidery -- these are quilts measured in years, tho...
Love, love, love Wheat Ear! Very pretty!
Crazy quilts are so much fun! Lovely work!
Lovely blocks - too bad all that choosing-just-the-right-fabric takes up so much time, same as scrap quilts.
Pretty Wheat Ear block!
