CQJP 2012 March

I am managing to keep up to date with my Crazy Quilt Journal Blocks (CQJP 2012).

My theme is Christmas and this month I used a blue background as my base. I really like the blue and don’t know why I don’t use that colour more often. It was always my favourite colour when I was growing up.

This month, I decided to needle turn appliqué a couple of Christmas crackers in the middle of the block.

Here is the finished 6" block.

The block looks a little bare on the right edge but I am leaving a place for a charm. I don’t put the charms on my crazy quilts until after they are quilted.

The little red stitches on the cretan stitch on the top right is Sorbello stitch.

I had better get started on my April block. Actually, hasn’t the year just started, why are we suddenly talking about April!

Bye for now,
