CQJP June & July blocks

Just noticed that I never posted a picture of my June block so here it is.  The lace was dyed in or shortly after taking the dyeing class with Kathy Shar.

Here is my July block which I just got finished today.

W.I.P August 4, 2015

I have so many projects on the go per usual.

This is what I am mainly concentrating on currently. Learning Thread Painting.  For those that do not know this is usually done with 1 strand of floss and with multi colors for shading.  It is a lot of work but well worth it.

If you are interested go poke around NeedlenThread.  That is where I found the class for this technique.  My husband had bought me a book from Trisha Burr that I just fell in love with but needed way more practice and this is finally sinking in.

Big news for me

One of my blocks is in the Crazy Quilt Quarterly Magazine.  For some it might not be a big deal but I have only been doing CQ for about 1 1/2 years so to me it is a BIG deal.  It is under the reader submission area.

2 Semi finishes

Have 2 more quilt tops finished.

First up is what I am calling Bargello of the Sea.  It doesn't show in the picture but the borders bring out the fish and coral in the one print.  Am thinking of gentle waves for the quilting.

Next up is from a local quilt shops BoM.  Will probably just do stitch in the ditch for this one.  Don't know how I will quilt the borders.  The picture is a little dark and yellowy guess I forgot to use the flash.

SRE & Embroidery Wisteria comparisons

As you probably all know I have been taking Crazy Quilting classes with Kathy Shaw.  During the course of these classes I have now done 3 Wisteria vines. Here they all are in the order in which they were done.

This one was done in August 2014

This one was done about 3 weeks ago.

This one was just finished today.

All so different.  Which one is your favorite.
