This blog should be called "The Adventures of a Fabric Junkie!". I am passionate about fabric, threads, colours and textures. I can record my crazy quilting, sane quilting, embroidery and everything else that I consider important in my life.

My completed CQ block for Anne

Here is my completed block for Anne in the DYB6 swap. Apart from the cat, I did a bouquet of flowers in the centre using silk ribbon, Kreinik sparkly 1/16th ribbon and glass beads and I really love the creeper down the bottom left corner sewn with variegated green stranded cotton and using Op Shop clear white flower-shaped buttons for the flowers. Anne asked for pastel colours on her cream background fabric so I've tried to stay within that range of colours so that my block will fit in with those previously worked by other people. The individual tatted flowers on the upper "garden" were sent to me by a friend in Ohio, US. They were made by the 80 yr old mother of another one of her friends for use on stationary but I thought they'd go well with crazy quilting.
