WIPW - Edged and Portrayed

Wednesdays come round so quickly and it is hard to keep up the progress for Work In Progress Wednesday. 

It is nearing midnight and I have just put the edge on the purple

Crazy for Crazy

block. 
 This was really fun to make and I can hardly wait to start on the next block, which will be ruby red.

I pulled out various pieced of red from my stash.

I also made another
Stumpwork Portrait
This was then turned into a greeting card.
The recipient of the card is strongly connected to the turquoise silk I used for the dress and I hope this fabric will evoke fond memories.

Your crazy block is very pretty and I love the stumpwork lady.

You have some gorgeous red fabrics there - just as rich and wonderful as the purples!

Time does fly doesn't it?
You've done beautiful work Queenie, your edging finish and getting your reds out.
The new stump work is a work of art, lovely, your friend will enjoy it.

Thank you!

Oh, I wish I had more free time or that time would pass more slowly. The hours are just swishing past!

I am lucky to know a dressmaker who specializes in evening gowns and from time to time I get scraps of fancy fabric. Red seems to be a popular party colour.

Queeniepatch said...

Thank you. The lady's face is rather wide, though, wouldn't you say?

Pamela said...

The purple is fabulous and the reds you've pulled are gorgeous. The card recipient will love it!

Queeniepatch said...

Thanks. I enjoyed making it so much!

After doing Trinity Green out of green stuff in my stash it is nice to make these monochrome cq blocks out of other colour in the stash.

Queeniepatch said...

Thank you.

Lovely work. The hexagon frames really set off each one.
Gorgeous red fabrics. Nice to see your Stumpwork ladies again.

Susan Hook said...

brilliant queenie, I love this sort of quilting, I can't wait to see your red one, the material looks lovely.

Queeniepatch said...

I hadn't made a stump work portrait in a long time and it was really fun to make one. I wish I had had more time to dress her more properly in some realistic looking garment.

Queeniepatch said...

Oh, I do love crazy quilting. You can pile on as much as you like! Some of the red fabric will be a challenge to stitch, though.

I so, so, so, LOVE your stumpwork!!!

Queeniepatch said...

Thank you! Making a tutorial I on my bucket list!
