Crazy Quilt Journal Project - Block 1

Here's my first crazy quilt block for this year.  All the fabrics are 100% cotton on a muslin base.  The blocks are 11" square unfinished but will end up being 9"-10" finished. 

I'm using these blocks as my practice pieces.  With cotton, I can draw the designs on the fabric which I can't do on the velvets, satins, and brocades of the 2014 CQ project which still needs to be finished.

Off the Shuttles: More Ice Drops

I've been busy making more ice drops. They're real easy to make.  I think the white thread makes the glass gems stand out more than the colored thread.
