I've started a couple of additional crazy quilt blocks.
The first one is created using bits of upholstery fabric. I haven't made up my mind yet as to what I will do with the solid ivory block in the center. Ideas?
You may think I have returned to CQJP 2012 with this block since it is the same fabrics and some of the same images used on my blocks. This one is going to have a different function however and is being created for someone very special.
Below are my blocks including one I am working on for CQJP 2013 - February. Yes, I am working on 3 very different sizes and looks. The variation achieved by working in different sizes is interesting as is the technique and thought process. Amazingly the four smaller blocks are much more intense and require more stitching than the largest block.
My larger block is about 21 1/2" square. I'm not sure what I will do with it when it is finished. The middle size block will end up roughly 9 3/4" H x 8" Wide. You have probably guessed by now that the smaller block is pretty small. It is going to be about 3" - 3 1/2" square which is why I am doing four of them to meet the 6" x 6" minimum. I hope to turn the smaller blocks into a doll size quilt using maybe the first six months blocks. I don't have particular plans for the remaining small blocks but do have some ideas jotted down. It is really too early to commit on that. This variety is keeping things interesting!
I am also getting anxious to pick up my paints again, so maybe I will add even more variety.
