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.
