Crazy Quilt RR - Block #1

I'm getting so excited as the next round in the HGTV Crazy Quilt RR is about to take place. All the blocks are due to be mailed by the 15th of each month and I am ready to receive my next block. We started this RR with about 40 ladies from all across the the US on October 15th when our first block was due to be sent out. My Group is called "The Crazy 1's" and there are 7 blocks being swapped about. My first block to work on was Owen Jules Mommy's. Her block is for her little girl and is to be all dressed up girlie like. Since most girls love pink I thought I would start it off by dyeing up an old doilie and embellishing it with silk ribbons, pretty threads, beads, buttons, charms and a pretty cloisonne butterfly.


  1. Nicki, that is so beautiful. Perfect for a little girl, or a big girl too. :)

  2. Looks great Nicki! Beautiful laces! I love the layers and textures! Can't wait to see more!

  3. Nicki, the sneak peeks don't do your work justice. I was so excited to be the next person to stitch on OJM's cq block, because I get to see your work before anyone else!!! LOVE IT!!!

    Question: Do you freehand stitch your silk ribbon motifs? If not what do you use to get the image on the fabric for stitching?

  4. Thank you ladies for the nice compliments. I truly enjoyed working on this particular motif.

    Jody, all my creations are from mind to hand - all freehand. I'm always afraid that if I draw with a pen it won't come out so I just wing it.


Thank you for visiting my Blog. Enjoy the Day with love in your heart!
