CQJP2015 registration has begun

CQ journal project registration has begun; will you be entering? I haven't decided yet. I really liked Lisa B.'s pincushions and thought that would be a terrific avenue to use to jump right in, but don't know if I can actually commit.

Tasks 4 and 5 - CQBC Class

I've made some progress with the block for Kathy's CQBC course. The course has been well written with detailed and easy to understand instructions.

 This is the pieced block stitched to muslin.
 Seams are marked with basic seam stitches.

Basic seams stitched.

Kathy's CQBC Class - My fabric

I signed up to take Kathy's, at, basic crazy quilting course. The fabric choices that we were to select had to be in the neutral or pastel tone, two of which I wouldn't normally work with for CQ, making it a tough decision for me. But, I managed to turn my scrap baskets upside down and find fabric that fits the bill perfectly.

My hussif is complete!

My completed hussif. It turned out huge, think large sheet of paper in length.  It's not perfect, but it turned out nice enough.

Hussif - Progress Update (or a late Work in Progress Wednesday)

Here is my progress on the hussif cover that I am working on. I don't know what I was thinking when I decided to do the mini cross stitches on the center patch, because that took me forever. At any rate though, I am happy with the progress.

Project for my sister

I finished the project that I was working on for my sister. I think I made great (and unique) use out of pieces of her wedding dress. She got married on Halloween, hence the orange and black color theme. Take a look.

She collects things with skulls, so I was tickled pink when I found these orange skull beads.

I had fun working on this project! My next project will be a hussif.

New Project

Well, I finally started CQ'ing again. My sister sent me her wedding dress to make something with, so I decided that I would make something cute for her. I'm going to keep it a little bit of a secret for now, so no pictures; but, I am sure that "it" will be adored. :)
