Crazy Quilt class, task # 4 assembling the block for stitching
The next task # 3 was a lesson on balance and composition , color and shapes, task #4 required the block to be assembled using the information from the 3rd lesson ( task). This was easy for me because I am a quilter and I have done a lot of crazy work. I am not a fan of puzzles and this is a lot like assembling a puzzle. This exercise is very good for me in that I have to follow directions - I am not so good at that. If I hadn't been sewing for a while I can see where I would have stalled during the assembly.
The pattern is traced onto the foundation muslin:
paper pieces are cut out
Pinned to fabric and cut out
Stitched down and hooped, ready for the embroidery tasks
Not my normal color palette, but by using neutrals, I can focus on the quality of my stitching.
I highly encourage you to try this class, it is always good to be in learning mode! you can go to Kathy's' blog for more info!
