One of the advantages of keeping a blog is the public nature of goals set. Last week I said if I was to progress with this quilt I had better push myself a little harder and return to the habit of sharing photos of blocks as I stitch them.
This is the latest block in next crazy quilt which I am calling the Lace quilt.
As regular readers know I blogged the stitching of my Diamond block quilt and the target of at least a block a week really helped push the project along. Reporting in and writing weekly on a set day like Wednesdays can be a bit stressful at times but it does make me aware of what has and has not been done.
I am not sure if this block is totally finished as I might add a button in the top left hand corner on the braid that runs across the block. Where will I put it? I think it will sit between the end of the ric rac and the top of the beaded line of stitches. Why is it not there yet? Well … it goes like this… last night I could not find the pinkish button I wanted to add. I will find it and when I do then I will stitch it on. But it is not a good idea to try and do it at 7:30 in the morning for a blog post!
Added later after finding the button!
I found the button and added it. Thought I would share so people can see how one element can change things. Once the block is set in the quilt it will be OK too.
Where are the other blocks?
You will find all the other blocks in the Lace Quilt category
