What I have been working on

Done some work on my CQJP 2015 March block.  Will post a picture of that on Wed or so.

Most of my time lately has been taken up with

1.  Bali Bedrunner - took a class last Jan 23 & 24 where I got a few of each type of piece done.  Got all my pieces made and trimmed so finally took a picture to show you.

These are roughly laid out there are still a few pieces to be added in once some of the pieces are joined as you can tell by the gaps inbetween some of the pieces.  The missing parts are just little squares.  This is one end of the bedrunner.  It will be 104 inches long.

2.  R2D2 - one of the ladies at John's work is expecting and has requested a R2D2 quilt.  So here is the drawing and pieces up on my board.  The pieces are still waiting to be prepped for machine applique.  I am going to use the starch & freezer paper to prep them then will use invisible machine applique.  The main body will be light grey with the head being dark grey.  The background is a dark blue with stars.

CQJP2015 - February block

Here it is.

The boy and girl are done with crayon tinting then outlined.  The spider is done with buttons,  The butterfly is done with heart shaped sequins.   Add in some silk ribbon flowers and some dmc/pearl cotton seam treatments with beads here and there and it is done. (actually was finished towards the end of January 2015)

Started working on my March block.  Almost have all of the seam treatments stitched but still needs beads/sequins, then need to add a few other elements as well as 3 charms.
