I have never participated in a Crazy patchwork Round Robin before,
and when I had the chance, on a Norwegian quilt list, I thought it might be a nice experience and joined. I just sent the block off today, before deadline.
It is made with silk, batiks and one ordinary quilt fabric.
I just want a small work, so mine is 6" by 9". The upper limit is 16" square. We are 7 to the group, so mine will not get everyone a lot of space to play on, but if others make a full square it can be nice with some not so big projects as well, don't you think ?
I have plans about what to make from this, but I will not tell before it comes home, if someone from the group reads my blog, so I don't limit them.
In fact I have a plan A, B and C depending on how the block looks when it returns home mid September :-)
This is my contribution to my own block - a spider's web, with spider.
Spiders means luck, and one can never have to much of luck :-)
From the beginning I planned to do the spider's web by hand, but could not get the right shimmer to the web. Doing it free motion on sewing machine gave it the right shimmer, just like a web covered by morning dew, in the early morning sun.
I had the pleasure of seeing a magnificent web in my garden last summer, complete with Mrs. Spider. It was such a sight in the early morning light, and amazingly enough it made it through a couple of heavy wind storms. What good work(wo)manship !!
Maybe Mrs. Spider would have been a good quilter was she human...........
