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,
