CQ Colour Wheel

A couple things worth checking out:

Janet has posted pictures on her blog http://gocrazywithme.blogspot.com/ of her completed cq colour wheel. It is amazing! I think this is the first time the use of complimentary colours has made sense to me. In each wedge there are touchs of the colour from the opposite side of the colour wheel and it works so well. Besides the magnificent use of colour this piece is what I consider the very best of crazy quilting: exquisite seamwork and the use of embellishments is balanced and not overpowering. I love it!

You can also check out Lauri's Colour Study quilt on her blog http://dontcallmecrafty.blogspot.com/ . It is beautiful also! Set up in a similar theme but in a different format - very effective! Gorgeous stitching!

It was exciting to see Kim, a fellow member of CQI, take first prize in the quilting division. Congratulations Kim! It is wonderful to see a crazy quilted piece win in a general quilting category - makes the win especially sweet!
