Recently I decided that I'd like to have examples of the crazy quilt work I so admire by others. I've signed up for a couple of RR's that, in the end, will give me ten 6 inch squares each embellished by only one person. What do I do with all those squares? Large items are just not in my future because I hate just sticking things in drawers and displaying them can be overwhelming. I plan to make the little squares into a book of sorts and will write about that when I actually have my game plan together.
I've decided to take it a little further than just the RRs and am contacting CQ artists whom I admire and either purchasing or trading squares with them. The piecing and the embellishment is to be done by each person so that the square is a true reflection of her work. My first square arrived several days ago from Pam Kellogg. I love this square! The photo does not do it justice. It is so different than any I've ever done and I only wish I could do this type of CQ. I've discovered that I definitely have my own style and I find it impossible to go in another direction as the results always bomb badly and end up in the trash.
