CQJP 2016 January Block Completed!
Well... the end of February is drawing near and I finally completed my CQJP 2016 January block! (CQJP stands for Crazy Quilt Journal Project. You may learn more about it here and see tons of crazy quilted eye candy here.)
My goal for CQJP 2016 is to create 12 12-inch blocks that will be pieced into a quilt for my bedroom. The color scheme in our room is red, black and white. Sticking primarily to these colors has been challenging in itself. Creating a block that will hold up to multiple trips through our washing machine and dryer in the future has also been challenging. (I do miss adding beads and bits of silk ribbon embroidery.) However, adding a few polymer clay buttons I created myself was a lot of fun.
Because I frequently see work on other blogs and wonder how things were done, I have shared details including the stitches and flosses I used to create each seam and each motif along the way. These posts are also my on-line journal for this project. For easier reference, I created this Pinterest board for my CQJP 2016 project so I may easily find the details if I need to look back at something in the future.
I am linking this post with Monday Stitchery Link Party #46 at Super Mom - No Cape! I do hope you will stop by to see the vintage embroidery pattern Sue has shared this week and to see the lovely work other bloggers have shared.
Thank you for stopping by!
