This week I finished everything on my list from last Tuesday. I finished Task #11 of the Basic Crazy Quilt Class. This was the next to last step. The last step is to sew on beads, buttons, charms and any other embellishments. Since I don't plan to do anything with the block, I don't think I'll waste the beads. I've had years of beading experience playing with a medieval group so I think I'm going to call this class done.
I enjoyed this class and would recommend it to others. It was free and the "handouts" are excellent, but the format does not really work for me. The way the class is structured is the teacher emails you a handout with instructions and you do the task, take a photo and then post it to a private blog. Then after the teacher has a chance to review your photos and leave comments (usually a day or two) she sends the next handout. Usually, I got distracted while I was waiting. I have Allie Aller's Crazy Quilting book which has some nice projects in it, so I think I will look to that for inspiration for my next Crazy Quilt project.
I finished the Aged Elegance quilt flimsy last Friday during Friday Night With Friends. Then, when I finished early, I finally made the green Xmas pillowcases. Those border prints were leftover from the quilt and I rather like how they turned out.
Crazy Quilt Class Task #11✓ Finish the outer border on the Aged Elegance quilt. (Inner border is finished..)✓ Make a green pillowcase to coordinate with our Xmas quilt.✓
