Blue Color Study Sue block

In the Crazy Quilting for Newbies group. I am in the blue cor study group called Slate Blue. The above block belongs to Sue. I decided to make both of Her Initials for this patch. I did the letter "S" in a medium blue shade of thread. The Letter "W" was done in a darker shade of blue thread. I also added 2 Blue Dragonflies by the initials. The seam above the letters I made was s diamond shape with different types of stitches for the center.

May BOM Just quilting

The Just quilting group we do a different block each month. The block style choosen for the month of MAy is callefd a Grecian Block. The block needed to be in a blue center and yellow hst. This is one of the first blocks that I have done since I figured out that my seam allowances were off. I was using a 3/8 seam insread of a 1/4 seam. It doesn't difference when you are sewing clothes but it seems to make a big difference when quilting.

HIgh Light Quilt

This quilt pattern is called High Light. I made this quilt for High School girl that I work with for graduation. I used different types of black and white fabric to make the main blocks and a teal swirl fabric. The black and white blocks are different types of Fashion prints. The patterns includes a black polka dot, Sewing pins, Silhouettes in black and white, and different fashions patterns. I used the Hobbs fusible quilt batting and a black anad white dot fabric for the back. I free motion stitched the entire quilt with black thread. I don't know if you can see the free motion stitching but it my second or third time doing it.

Blue Color Study Nina block

In the Yahoo Group called Crazy quilting for Newbies. I am currently in a the Blue Color study Round Robin. The group that I am a member of is called the Slate Blue Group. I worked on the light blue patch of Nina's block. I made the "N" with different shades of blue threads and added blue flowers with some leaves. The seam that I did I added some dangling beads. The beads seem to be longer than I thought so they may get in others way while they are designing. The color seems to be a little harder for me to do. The color is just not hitting me right.

Gina's Autumn Block

In the Crazy for Quilting Yahoo Group.This is the 5th block of 12 in this Round Robin. This is part of the Round Robin group that is doing a Autumn theme.
The above block belongs to Gina. I worked on the Dark brown patch. I made two different colors of wheat stems with a raffia bow. The seam stitch that I did was a single herringbone in a shade of brown or tan. I am starting to have a difficult time trying to make different types of stitches then I have already done. I just don't want to be known for doing the same stuff.

DYB - Meg S Block

In the Yahoo Group called Crazy Quilting International. I am currently in a Round Robin called DYB Anything Goes. You have to complete a entire block for each person in the group. The blocks that Meg chose are in shades of blue. On this block I took a minimal use of embellishing theme because the blocks were so pretty on their own that only assenting them would be the best. In the four corners I used some Blue Bulgar Beads to make a half snowflake in each. The patch to the right of the center patch I used a light blue thread to go around some of the circles and make them seem 3 deimcinal in nature. The patch in the lower center I used a blue bead in the center of the flowers that were at the end of each stem.The patch center left I added green beads to the edge of a ciecle that has a lime green center. On that seam I used a gold thread and made seires of gold snowflakes. The top center patch I think that I only did a Chevron stitch because the fabric was a beutiful pattern that needs no extra accents. The photo on the right is of all six blocks that are in Meg's Series.

DYB - Lisa B Block

In the Yahoo Group Crazy Quilting International, I am currently in a Round Robin that is called DYB Anything Goes. The above blocks belong to Lisa. All six blocks have different fairies on them. I choose the Fairies that are holding the Hydrangea flowers. I stitched the block with different shades of yellow beads and green threads. The fairies are holding the Hydrangeas. You can't see the beads very well but in the center of the hydrangeas each has a pale yellow beads. That is on both of the hydrangeas. The taller fairy has a brighter yellow beads that accent the layers of the dress she is wearing. The patch above the fairies I made a spider web with a spider and jeweled leaves that look stuck in the web. The patch to the left of the Fairies I made a Pale yellow Beaded Larkspur flower. I could even be Delphnium. When I try to stitch flowers I try and make them look as realistic as possilbe. I guess since I work with flowers everyday I want them to look similar to what I work with. The patch to the right of the fairies I decided to put the letter "L" in pink. I also added a couple of jeweled dragonflies to the patch. The patch below the fairies is stitched with a flower that looks similar to a row of daisies or pansies.
