Crazy Quilt Project

Part 1 was designing a block and choosing the fabric. I chose twelve different fabrics. I now think I have my work cut out for me choosing 2 fabrics with so much detail.

For Part 1.2 I added a fan. I wanted something that would compliment the little girl and her lacy dress. Oh I don't like how the fan is so uneven on the left side. I definitely must re-think my options.

Part 2 consisted of 10 different stitches using 3 types of thread stitched on a sampler made for this project. Then choosing 3 stitches used on the sampler, embellish 3 seams.

Part 3 was trying to design 10 stitches of my own (the best we could). The next step was to embellish 2 seams chosen from the 10 stitches just created on the sampler. I also decided to change my fan. I like it so much better. Don't you think it looks like it is a piece from her dress?

Oh my, the block looks wrinkly! Plus I had to add muslin around the edges to fit into a hoop. Those stitches just were not cooperating without one.

Now on to Part 4...... Beading...... and off to the ironing board.
