I am behind the news again this morning because CQMag Online has been out a week or so. So make a cuppa and settle back to browse and read. What is in the latest issue? I am picking the eyes out here but to give a brief and quick overview of what this issue contains first there is a continuation of Barbara Blankenship’s Ideas and Inspiration Challenge. Don’t miss it as Barbara assembled interesting seam treatments and motifs for inspiration in your crazy quilting. An article My Favorite Crazy Quilt Embellishments by Dean Deerfield ties in with this.
Allison Aller writes about a method for finishing blocks in Mounting Crazy Quilt Blocks Onto Foam Core.
