Basic Crazy Quilt Course

I have had a wonderful first few days participating in the January session of Kathy Shaw's Basic Crazy Quilt Course.  It was drawn to my attention by Dawn of 'Sew Much to Quilt' who completed a beautiful crazy quilt block following the same class at the end of last year.





So far, I have gathered together all the items I need to be able to take the class, constructed the base block (using some interesting design principles to achieve the correct fabric balance) and made a 'doodle' muslin to practice the embroidery stitches on. It is a fantastic class and the guidance and information given is superb. 




Registration for the January session has now closed but, I understand that Kathy will be offering it again later in the year and it is well worth looking out for!  This weekend, I'm looking forward to completing the next task which is reading all about the use of beads/trims. Hope you all have a great weekend!
