my latest crazy quilting experience :)

Heres my own version of the Egyptian blocks, the group CQ4N has an actual swap and since I am new Im not in the swap but decided to make one anyways! I have added a few more things to this since this picture was taken.
Heres my very first CQ block, this one I am keeping for myself and probably will make it into a little purse that I can take just the wallet and keys and checkbook.
Its STILL not done yet, I have more beads I want to put on it! ANother base block ready to be embellished but Im working on the above two and get them finished first and then reward myself by playing on this one. This one was a piece that Crazy Judyth sent to me , she found it at Sallys! Well I added more pieces to it, and made it 12 1/2 inches. Will be a pillow for my couch eventually :) It has coduroy, satins, silks, velvets, brocade and I think a piece of dupioni but Im not sure, it could be taffeta.

Looks like you are off to a great start, and already developing your own style. The Egyptian block is really cute, and I loved seeing how that first block looks now. Lots of fancies in that block from Judyth - you'll definitely get to decide which ones you prefer!

Oh Robin, these are so nice. I love the bottom one. What a neat color combo. Have fun!

Way to go, Robin! Look forward to seeing that little purse ;-) That new 'naked' block looks like tons of fun to stitch on! Have fun with it.
