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.
