Crazy Quilting Journal Project

I am ready for the New Year
with a new project.
For those of you not familiar
with CQJP, it is an annual
challenge issued to needle
workers/artists to create a
major crazy quilt project in
a 12 month period.  There
are guidelines to follow and
monthly photo submissionsto be made.
You have seen me create a
block  or hearts for Round Robins
or a Swap, but not a full
I have completed the piecing
of 12 blocks.  The fabrics are
mostly silk with a lightweight
linen and a cotton or two.

The colors are cream and
lavender.  I have been
collecting threads, silk
ribbon and beads to
use for the embellishing.

 I have my needles and I am
ready to stitch the New Year in!

Love to all,


  1. Love that color combo,Deb.
    Wishing you a wonderful 2012.

  2. Perfect combination: cream and lavender. I'm looking forward to see your embellishments and what colors you will use. Purple? Yellow?

  3. Deb, your blocks are lovely - what great colors! What will you make with them? And I am looking forward to hearing what word you select for 2012. Mine is a rather selfish word this year: ENJOY. Hugs, Cathy

  4. Wishing you and your loved ones a very happy New Year, may it bring you gifts of joy, health and happiness and lots of stitching time for you.

  5. Me too Deb! I'm really looking forward to completing my project! I LOVE your choice of fabrics, and I know your blocks are going to be beautiful.

  6. I'm not taking part in the project, but I will be watching your progress. Cream and lavender is an interesting combination - can't wait to see what you do with it!! Happy 2012!
