2012 Crazy Quilt Challenge- The Beginning

My Yahoo crazy quilt group is doing a CQ by 2012 challenge. I need to get mine done by July 2011 so it can be in my quilt guild's quilt show at the World Arena here in Colorado Springs. at first I thought about doing burgundy/green/gold but then I decided on the teal/aqua/turquoise/gold blocks I had tried to sell earlier this year. I got some brown satin for the border so some of my embellishments will be brown. I am going to try to tone down the gold a little too. Should be spectacular if I don't say so myself.

 When I was downtown Tuesday I went to Holly Berry and bought some silk thread and some other stuff....$12.17 or so...odd because I already had a massive pile of threads and ribbons lol! I just can't stop adding to it can I?

So far I have about 5 hours in piecing the blocks and 1 hour in gathering beads and trims. I will try to keep track of embellishing hours by watching tv and working during certain shows. Sound like a plan...now I just need some bad weather to keep me home and in front of the TV.

This is going to be beautiful, and I hope you let us “watch” your progress! And don’t forget to let me know when it is finished so we can get it up on the CQ by 2012 Blog! Now, I must get crackin’ on my CQ! Thanks for the nudge! Hugs, Cathy
