I’ve been a sluggard about working on my Joggles Encrusted Crazy Quilt class block. Sharon (our fearless leader) had to leave home to help care for her very ill mother, and I did not want to bother her with a lot of questions. She was really great and maintained computer connection the entire time she was away from home, but I was uncomfortable about placing any demands on her time. She’s back home and now I’m in full class mode!!!
My first seam is completed and I had a great time making it.
It’s very close to a seam Jackie (from the crazyquiltinternational yahoo group) shared with everyone last month. She was smart and used 2 little straight stitches in V formation to tack down the cast on stitch (the light lavender flower). The looked like little pistils and even had some little French knots at the tips. I like the added texture of the flowers standing up a bit from the base fabric and stuck with using the center bead alone to anchor the flower in place.
I know what my next seam treatment will be and am starting to plan motif locations. This is such a great class. I’m learning a lot and having fun.
