Here are the first two blocks for the crazy quilt I am making for the 2012 quilt challenge. I don't know if I will make it or not(only 25 will be chosen for the Houston Quilt festival) but at least I'm going to give it a try.All these fabrics are my handdyed fabrics. The center piece will have either a thread painted flower or SRE on it. I am excited I finally came up with a design. This quilt will have 9 , 17 inch blocks in it. Which choosing the color scheme I decided to use there will be all the colors in a 12 step color wheel. The name of my quilt is Crazy About Nature,,,so I am hoping all will turn out as I envision it to.

This block is the block I will be working on next year for the challenges that we have every month in my group CQInternational. Every month we are given a different challenge, so I'm looking forward to that.

Houston? Are there two 2012 challenges??

Thelma said...

Thanks Carolyn!

Hello Betty, there is only the one challenge for 2012. The single block I made up is for challenges in a yahoo group I belong to for next year.It is something we do to learn new techniques for crazy quilting.
