I'm at the very beginning of a "Round Robin" crazy quilt color study (Yellow) with the group CQforNewbies on Yahoo! I will turn this finished block into the center of a wall hanging for my bedroom which is gray and yellow.
Crazy quilting is a wonderful media to use up bits of fabrics,
I'm assembling yellows to make my patch work block. I will have 4-6 partners in this round robin, each will sew their bit and mail it on, in the end I will have a very beautiful and unique block
I also have to gather yellows for my work on my partners blocks
Yes, I use rubber stamps to stamp an image on the fabric and then embroider!

Sewing the patches on the foundation
This is my Vigorelli 'Amica' sewing machine. Made in Italy this is a very fine machine and it sews like a race car!!
Here is the block before I sew on margins (makes it easier to hoop).
I re read the rules and discovered my block was three inches to large so I had to cut it down a bit!
This is referred to as the naked block, well almost, I added a daisy!
I 'll show you the bits as I do them, I was able to do a beak and a few feathers tonight!
