February's CQ Block & adventures in dyeing....

Just a peek at my naked February Crazy Quilt block.  I painted this angel last spring, one of five 'Spring Angels'. I printed her on silk and even mapped out the crazy quilt pattern. It was so much easier to sew together the pieces of velvets. I used several piece of my favorite laces. I'm starting to get low on those!

But, I'm not comfortable sitting around without something stitching in my hands.... so I attempted my first ribbon dyeing on both seam binding and silk ribbon. I'm very happy with the results!

What are you up to this week?
Sweet Blessings, Chris
