CQJP 2014 January Block

Well I managed to get my January block finished and in to Kathy on the 31st January ! Talk about skin of my teeth :)
Here's a picture of the finished block apologies for the picture quality but it's difficult taking them due to the lack of light these days.

On the whole I'm quite pleased with this, it doesn't show up very well but the herringbone stitching on the seams is in gold, and the light blue and straw colour on the flower have Kenicks gold filament added. All those together with the blue beads really catch the light.

One down ... 11 to go!

I meant to add, please go to the CQJP 2014 blog ( link at the side), there are so many wonderful blocks there.


  1. Gorgeous, Lesley! Love the colour combo...I adore bright colours. It's a great start, and the first one is always the toughest. :-)

  2. Thank you Lori :) I plan to intersperse the highly patterned blocks with plain which will have a particular embellishment on each.

  3. So pretty, I'm looking forward to the rest ��

  4. very nice Lesley, I love doing these crazy blocks, must get going on the one for february now

  5. Me encanta el Crazy Quilting. Es lento pero hermoso.
