WIPW - Finished - but for the edge

Work In Progress Wednesday shows how the

Crazy for Crazy
has been encrusted with more thread, beads, sequins.


The additions can be seen in the picture below.
 


I think this block is finished, but for the edge. I will add a bias tape edge around the hexagon shape and then get on to the next block, in a different colour way, hoping to learn some more tricks of the trade from Sharon Boggon's great book:

What a beautiful piece of art! Absolutely gorgeous stitching!

Thank you!
I have learned and got so much inspiration from Sharon and quilters like you, who make beautiful cq seam decorations.
I think I have missed one thing - the spider's web, but I can put that in one of the other blocks.

Fantastic work. your work is very inspiring. I enjoyed the progress of this block.

Queeniepatch said...

That is one of the reasons I am working on this cq quilt. I want to try out as many TAST and SSS stitches as possible!

Have you seen Sharon's book? It is full of inspiration, I will 'copy' some designs and ideas to learn, but then want to let go and be creative.

Wonderful block, Queenie.Once you've done a few blocks I's sure you'll e incorporating your own ideas into the new blocks.
YES! Sharon's book is just the very Best for those wishing to learn and those of us who can see more inspirational ideas there.

Queeniepatch said...

I am sure I will incorporate things that are not included in Sharon's book, but to start with I will learn by 'copying'.

That is lovely. I agree, the more you look into Sharron's book the better it gets.

Annet said...

Great finish! I still have had no time to read Sharon's book, such a pity.

Queeniepatch said...

She has so many ideas and they inspire us to come up with our own!

Queeniepatch said...

Once you read the book you will need time to work the ideas, too! It is that inspirational!
