Work in Progress Block 37 done

Crazy quilt block 37I am happy to announce block 37 is complete! I am doing a happy dance as I feel like I am getting back into the swing of things.

As usual if you click on the block you will be taken to larger photograph so you can have a good sticky beak.

Once again on this block I used my CQ stencils as a template to create the stems of the floral spray on the right hand side of the block.

I stopped stitching to take a photo of the CQ stencil I used (sitting on the paper as it is clear it is hard to photograph!) I used the curves as a template for the vine like stems.

These scallops were of course created using my CQ stencils as templates.

  1. Just love all your work have just started doing slow stitching not really sure how to do it properly
    but love your ideas of beading last so beautiful thank you.

    1. Hi Clair I don’t think there is a right and wrong way to do slow stitching – it is more a philosophy about how you approach stitching. the main thing is to enjoy it

  2. Oh your work is so beautiful. I can hardly wait to see more of your work. How I wish I could still do my sewing. I was just getting better at doing this kind of work and of course now I get all kinds of ideas. My beautiful sewing room that my husband had made for me sits their sadly. Thank goodness for knitting. Keep up the beautiful work. You have another new fan.

  3. Are the blue “Asters” in the first couple of photos done with lace? Or knots? Or . . .? I really like them. I love my stencils and use them almost daily. What a boon.

  4. Sharon, your block is beautiful! I did get my sticky beak right up to the screen. I hadn’t heard that description, but recognized it when I did it.
    I’m still working on a stitching deadline, hope to have something to show next week.
