CQBC - Half Way There

Remember my latest venture - The Crazy Quilt Beginners Class being held by Kathy over at Shawkl, well I have done all the seam embroidery and I am now waiting to begin the silk ribbon work.

Kathy's instructions are very detailed and we go right back to basics, learning how to mark our seams for each stitch and then how to do all the stitches and their combinations.

Once all the silk ribbon work has been added, I will then go back and finish off some of the embroidery seams with beads and sequins.

I expect the block will be quite full by the end of the classes but what a terrific way to learn new ideas.  I can't wait until I finish each task and then I receive my next instructions.
