Work in Progress Wednesdays: Another CQJP Block started

crazy quilt block startThis week I would like share the start of another Crazy Quilt Journal Project block. I am running horribly behind in this challenge – like (clears throat in an embarrassed manner) this is the block for August! I try and tell myself that allows new hands to see that if they run behind on something it is OK to be human, but I don’t what to slip too far!

As you can see its pieced and I have a couple of stitches on it but that is it. This “having to report in” on Wednesday is why this weekly challenge is good for me and reading the  comments left  I see it helps others too.

In case your wondering about the frame I have the block on I am still using it and really like it. I wrote a review of the Grip-n-Stitch embroidery frame review here.

    This week has been about trying to move forward with ideas more than completing anything! I am really thankful for the push to move forward with WIP and WISP because that is really me!

    I finished another block for my champagne quilt. I don’t know yet how many blocks I will make.

    I added some ribbon embroidery to my block. Thanks so much! Angela

    I like the colours and patterns in this block, looking forward to see what you’re going to do with it.
    You’re right, this weekly challenge helps me a lot. I’m quilting at least an hour every week. This week’s progress is on my blog:
    and a better view here:

  6. Nice colours, it’ll be a good block. One month/six weeks behind is not bad – I’m half the challenge behind with TAST!

    Anyway, be that as it may, I’ve made a little progress on my WISPs and posted about it here:

    I am behind on this challenge as well.
    I have my blocks all done and assembled but my setting needs embellishing. I looked at it yesterday and decided I didn’t like it.
    My head is not in the crazy quilt space at the moment and I have to do some other things before I can spend time on the CQJP 2012.

    Ha ha! I don’t think that I can call myself a new hand but I am always behind, perhaps that is why most of my WIPs are WISPs.
    I am nearing completion on my current project but it has taken far longer than I expect!
    I love the colours on your August block and look forward to seeing it develop.

  9. It looks so inspiring to see a ‘blank’ CQ block, and start thinking about how to embellish it. Have fun!

    I have worked on one of my CQ block seams:
