Another new experience

I decided to try making a crazy quilt block and this is the result. I have started doing a little hand embroidery on it. I am not sure what I will do with this block. It was just stuff I have around the house left over from other projects. It's fun but I don't think I would make one this big again and I am going to experiment with ways to do the top stitching by machine. That may take some of the fun out of it, however.

my first little block

Well yesterday I decided to dive in and make a little pieced block. I used the style of the liberated quilter, Gwen Marston. This is about the size of a postcard, so I have a ways to go, but this much was lots of fun.

Peacemaking banner

This is the banner I made for our church for Peacemaking Sunday. Some of the parts are on velcro so the children could put them on last Sunday.
