I saw a rendering of this card somewhere on the internet, these are my versions. I painted cards. Three different watercolor paper. I'm definitely liking one over the others. That's how I'm learning, by trying different papers and paints.
Well, I started this quilt about 3 yrs ago. Made some mistakes putting the blocks together, so I put it up for 3 years. then in June at the Tulsa Quilt Show, I came across an expert in Crazy Quilting, The Bead Ranch gal from Stillwater, OK. She told me to take the block apart that I had sewn together, make the rest of the blocks and sash them. In September of 2015 I embroideried the rest of the names of my family on fabric, then started making the CQ blocks. Got it out in December and started embellishing the blocks. I tried to put Charms on the person's blocks that had interest or related to that person.
I know most Crazy Quilts don't have Bling on them, but since I love bling and since it's MY Quilt....
Like I say, "it doesn't have to be perfect, but it does have to be finished". I must say I now hate velvet. lol
