This gorgeous block was on one of my Christmas crackers in an exchange at CQI. Now it is the start of my next AAQI quilt.
So far only one seam treatment and one embellished patch but, hey, it's a start, right?
I managed to finish and mail some quilt blocks for an online quilt block lottery. I didn't win (obviously) so I made 16 of these 6-1/2 inch blocks to send to Melanie who did won. It took me awhile to find enough white with black patterned fabric in my scraps but I did manage. Once they were done I couldn't help thinking how much fun they would be to play around with so I might have to make some for myself! Or at least making some will go on the list! lol
The other project I finished and mailed off were ten pole scrunchies for the AAQI Heartbreak to Hope exhibit starting up soon. These fabric tubes cover the poles that make up the framework for hanging the quilts. I tried spinning a tale for dh when he asked what pole scrunchies were - all about my contributing them to a charity that provides them to underprivileged exotic dancers with cold hands but he wasn't buying! rofol
