I am not a quilter at all....never did one in my life. I love them and admire the work put into them but I'm a small project type of person. So my mindset is that this CQA project has four small pieces and then the finishing to make it a wall hanging. I figure that I can handle that...hopefully:)
I'm very new to crazy quilting so I'm a bit nervous.
Just deciding on what fabrics to use was my first hurdle. Carli has a free spirited approach to crazy quilting which I like but the conformist in me is really having a hard time putting the crazy into the quilting....LOL
I have a shoebox of small pieces of fabric that I have been gathering up for awhile......satins, brocades, velvets, laces...that sort of stuff. I got some of my bits from Diane's Etsy store when she had a fabulous sale last year. I also won some from her in a blog giveaway too:)
The first square we are doing is winter. So Carli asked us to gather together bits and pieces that suggest the colours of winter to us and build a block to work on. I have a ton of white pieces......I'm thinking winter is mostly whitish isn't it?
Just for fun...while I was considering my options.... I found a stock photo of winter scenery on Google and loaded in on Palette Builder at Play Crafts.
Lots of blues and grays. It even gave me the Kona cotton colours!
Well after fooling around with winter themed pictures for awhile I put some bits together. Lots to ponder:
I think it should have some shades of white, blue and gray.......I also found a piece of bluey purple which is very pretty.......decisions........decisions:)
Once I get it all together I'll post my nude block for you to see. Stay tuned.
