My Crazy Blocks

The Southern Cross Crazies Round Robin is over and I have received my blocks back. I sent off 5 base blocks earlier this year and one by one they have been embroidered by the other participants and now I have them back.

It was supposed to be a tone on tone round robin which means that the embroidery should be in the same colours as the base block, I said that they could do whatever they wanted. It's fun to look at what they have done. Everyone has a different style.

I don't have any plans for the blocks; they will go into the pile with the previous round robins that I have participated in. One day when I get enough I might get them out and put them all into a quilt.

I got a surprise in the mail the other day, Florence had been dyeing some laces and she sent me some. What a kind thing to do.

I look forward to seeing what you will do with all your blocks. I have plans for a crazy block quilt, but done with the machine and not by hand!

I suppose I might do something with the blocks eventually. I have done some crazy quilts by machine using free machine stitching and it was a lot of fun.

Your blocks are wonderful! Each lady did a great job and I am impressed with the greens and aqua colors...beautiful!

Linda Steele said...

Thank you Robbie, I almost wish that I had kept all the blocks in the aqua colour but I suppose it might make for a more interesting quilt in the end.

Wow! there are some talented people in this swap!

Linda Steele said...

I agree Mary, we have some very talented embroiderers in the group.
