My February block for the Crazy Quilt Journal Project 2012 is finished. This time I did a green 6" block using silk fabrics.
Here is the base block before I added any embroidery.
My theme for this year is Christmas so I put a couple of candy canes in the middle of the block. I decided to satin stitch the red and white stripes on an angle and it gives a nice rounded look to the candy canes.
Every month I am trying a stitch or technique that I have to look at a book to remember how to do it. This month the stitch that I cannot remember to do automatically is the chained feather stitch.
I added some beads to the stitch for the first time because I usually leave it plain.
People from all around the world have started putting their blocks on the CQJP 2012 blog. Anyone can look at them by going to the blog. It is so wonderful to see everyone’s blocks.
Bye for now,
