Working a bit of CQ


 For the first time in over a year, I am actually working on a little crazy quilting.  I feel very rusty at it but this is a good project to get on with and finish up.  It will be a cushion cover for my daughter - a reminder of her trip back to Brazil last year.
 This is the project I took with me to work on at the Stampede and that has jump started it for me so I hope to actually finish it.  This was the first seam - french knots, herringbone, detached chain stitches.  My thought is to keep the stitching primarily in yellow and green - the colours of the Brazil flag.
Along with the recycled denim, there are pieces of t-shirts etc incorporated into the piecing.  After all this time away from crazy quilting my fingers feel pretty clumsy and I am not seeing the opportunities to add stitching as easily.  Like I said, I am rusty.  But I am back at it!
