I have taken an extended break from blog land and crazy quilting. I decided that since I woukd be home this winter and not working to get back at it! My sewing room is once again up and in working order, so I have no more excuses!
I will be doing the CQJP 2015 challenge this year. Today I started to dig through fabrics and pictures for inspiration, the fabric I had hoped to use has Christmas words on it, which makes it not as usable as I had hoped. I am leaning toward a winter palette, snowflakes, snowmen....white, silver, blue. Not an original idea I know but these are colors outside my box and I do really like snow men!
Each month I have picked a different theme related to season, holiday, etc. should be fun to see how it all works out.
I am off in search of an inspiration piece, picture to start from!

My second attempt is on a piece of canvas, another of my sun dyed fabric. On this one I wrote on it using a black Sharpie. I do not think it is done yet. The top of this one will get fabric glued together so it won't spoil the area where it says Blessings! Not sure what else it wants, maybe some buttons.
I am planning on working on another one with this week's TAST.

The idea of the heart was one I had someone put on a block of mine many years ago, I have used it ever since, and love the look of it. I also made a couple flowers on another piece of the crazy quilt.
Enjoy your weekend!!
