Another Crazy quilt block completed for the stitch sampler quilt

Over the Easter break I have had some time to myself and completed the 11th block in the sampler quilt. The idea behind this quilt initially was to experiment with different stitch combinations as applied to crazy quilting which I am doing – after a fashion but I still find myself resorting to old favourites. This time around a button and bead trail picked up a dead area in the block. I have a larger version of the block here.

See just as everyone thought I moved over to the dark side of freeform knitting and scrumbling I go and finish something else! Actually I have a lovely couple of days quietly stitching.

I will be mucking about with my blog today trying to tame the side bar a bit. Let me know if anyone has troubles leaving comments as I have some hefty spam blocking implemented.
