CQJP13 January Progress + Another CQ WIP

I am currently working on my January block for the Crazy Quilt Journal Project 2013. I had thought I might be done with it this weekend, but last night was in a bit of a funk and undid the same seam treatment three times. Then I gave up and went to bed.

I also wanted to remove the lace piece I added, as I have decided it is too white, but first I am going to try and dab alcohol inks onto it while still attached to the block, since I did a really good job of sewing it on securely!

Another crazy quilted project I am working on is repairing a purse I made ~8 years ago. It is the very first, and only, CQ project I have completely finished. I have several blocks completed that are waiting for just the right project to go into (like 99.9% of all my crafting supplies), but this is the only one that has been turned into a finished product.

A couple years ago it was used as a chew toy by my brother-in-law's dog.
I circled a few of the seam treatments in need of repair. Something I didn't take a picture of was the damage to the lining-completely destroyed.

I'll post the finished January block sometime before January 31st!

  1. Nice color combo and quilt design, Rachael! It's refreshing to see quilts in non-blocks and perpendicular angle forms. :)
