Crazy Quilt Embellishment Class WIP


This is my block as it is now.  I made some mistakes, mixed up some seams, but I didn't stress over it.  As it is now, I see one seam that I may have to change before Kathy approves me to move on to the 1st ribbon assignment.  I didn't really see it until I posted the pic.  Not one to want do-overs I'll wait to see what Kathy thinks.

I have pieced blocks before, but never embellished seams.  I found it to be very relaxing.  I'm eager to work on blocks that I have created and seams treatments that I select. Eager to try more stitches on more colorful fabric.  I'm eager for more assignments and hopefully another class.  If I had a bucket list, this art form would be at the top.

Your stitches look really nice. I started with TAST 2012, but got behind, and that was the end of that. Some stitches were difficult too and would definitely take practice. Maybe another time I can get back into that.

Way to go girl!

OMG, Carol! This is nothing short of stunning! Taking a class can make all the difference. In addition to learning, it can provide motivation and feedback. Both are so important to keeping one going sometimes. I think you may have found your thing! Simply beautiful!!!

This is lovely! And you are just beginning? What a wonderful journey this will be. I especially love the stitches that resemble grass tufts and the ones that look like jacks. Very nice work. I was just gifted with a wonderful DVD by Jean Littlejohn and Jan Beaney titled In Stitches. I think there will be more stitching going on in my house in the future! Thanks for sharing.
