The Sunday Special

The next technique in the book (Fabric Embellishing) is Traditional Crazy Quilting.  Oh Goody!  I’ve been wanting to dabble in CQ, but I’ve hesitated because I really don’t need to become obsessed with anything else.  I have plenty of obsessions already, thanks anyway!

But, here is the perfect opportunity to play – and pretend I won’t get hooked on just one block!  Today, I pieced the basic block:


I decided I need to clean out some of my green scraps.  Of course, this did not make much of a dent!  I’m not sure a whole quilt would make much of a dent.  LOL!


I pulled out some possible trims to use and I will (hopefully) spend time this week embellishing the seams.  I discovered that, although I have a huge stash of laces and trims, most of them are too large for this type of embellishment.  Dear me!  Could it be that I need to shop for smaller trims?!?
