CQJP 2012 November

I actually finished my November Crazy Quilt Journal Project block very early in November but put it aside as I was preparing for my daughter's wedding. My theme is Christmas and this month I made it a bit easier on myself by putting a beautiful tatted wreath in the centre. I added some beads to give it some sparkle.

I have made the various blocks all different sizes and this is one of the 12 inch blocks.

This is what the block looked like before I added the embroidery.

Here's a close up of the tatted wreath. I bought it years ago at a small quilt show and I always found it too big to use. It was perfect for this block though. I bought a book on tatting when I was last in Houston, it's something on my to-do someday list!

I have a couple more close-ups from the block.

The year's flying by and there is only one more month to go in this Crazy Quilt Journal Project. It is going to be run again next year. I'll look up the details and put them in another post for you.

Bye for now,

Thanks Lorraine,

The tatting looks perfect on your block! I was recently given some cute tatting designs, and have been wondering how to use them. Seeing how you have used yours has given me an idea. I still have four more CQ blocks to make (yes, I'm way behind I know, but I do intend to complete 12) and I will include one of my tatting pieces to embellish a block.

I will be looking forward to seeing how you use the tatting pieces.
