Beetle CQ Progress 11-16-2018

Have had a lot on the go but did get some work done

4x4" 6 blocks (only 1 seam)                                                   6/6

4x8" 8 blocks (3 seams)                                                         5/8 another

triangle 44 blocks (only 1 seam)                                          44/44

body blocks sewn up (3 to 5 seams per block)                      0/55

So with everything that was going on around here I did manage to get the 6 singles and 4 more doubles done. 

Hope to have the legs blocks done and sewn together within the next 3 to 4 weeks.

However, I do need to get some of the body blocks sewn up as I am using those for CQJP2019.

Beetle CQ progress 11-5-2018

Have all of the triangle blocks done. Plus 1 of the 4x8" blocks done.  Would have been more but have been too distracted to work the last few days John was laid off on Thursday so have not been in the mood to do any crafts.

4x4" 6 blocks (only 1 seam)                                                   0/6

4x8" 8 blocks (3 seams)                                                         1/8

4x12" 8 blocks (5 seams)                                                       0/8   

triangle 44 blocks (only 1 seam)                                          44/44

body blocks sewn up (3 to 5 seams per block)                      0/55

I have signed up for CQJP2019 for the body blocks just hoping with recent happeneings that I can accomplish as much as I want to.

Progress report on the Beetle CQ

Been working on the triangles first.

Out of the 44 I have 23 and a half done.  Will show pictures once the legs are all sewn together.

On a different note I saw these on pinterest one day and had to make one.  I have the beads for a few more as well.

Hopefully the email - reply thing is fixed

Did the fix so hopefully I can reply to your comments again.  If not will try it again.

Something is different with my blog

I used to receive emails when anyone commented on any of the posts.  I no longer am receiving them, so cannot respond to each one like I used to :(

Anyone know how to fix this/?

Progress on the Beetle CQ wall hanging

Here are the basic blocks for the beetle legs.  The yellow walls in that room are distorting the colors.  They are all grey to black.  Still need to sew them onto muslin and embellish them all.

4x4" 6 blocks (only 1 seam)
4x8" 8 blocks (3 seams)
4x12" 8 blocks (5 seams)
triangle 44 blocks. (only 1 seam)

There will be a total of 114 seams for the legs.


This is something I was playing with while on my hiatus.  Is supposed to be for an earring but I altered the pattern just a touch and can use it for a CQ block some day is less than 2 x 2 inches.
