Crazy Quilt Journal Project

I delayed the start of my crazy quilt block for the 2015 Crazy Quilt Journal Project until mid-January, but finished it. I have never worked on any crazy quilt blocks in all my years of working with fiber arts. So for me the simple rules of the project were easy: "The CQJP is about promoting the art of crazy quilting and expanding the participant’s individual artistic creativity and technical knowledge." 


I am planning each month's 8" block in a different color, reflecting the holiday or season associated with that month (in Michigan, USA). I will incorporate the 12 blocks into a wallhanging. 

I have a large supply of various embellishments, fibers, threads and yarns to use. I have not done hand embroidery work for over 20 years (pillowcases and crewel embroidery pictures) and getting back into the swing of it was not as easy as I thought. I also want to include in each block a picture printed to fabric with my inkjet printer. The one in this block is from a Dover book collection. 

Next month I will be thinking Valentines! Come back and see what I have done and how I might have improved. Thank you for visiting.
