Crazy Quilt Of My Dreams, Progress



On January 24th 2008, I started piecing the large center hexagon which took me two whole days to finish. You can see a picture of this in the center picture above. I used 22 different fabrics and used 8 of these fabrics twice. The color wave is shades of white and creams with a small dash of pinks added. I used the stitch and flip method of piecing this section which was easy for me. The rest of the muslin templates will be crazy pieced which will be much more of a challenge.
The top photo shows a picture of the next step which will be crazy piecing the small center hexagon. I plan to add a photo transfer photo inside the heart area.
I have 16 more muslin templates to crazy piece so much work to go. The piecing of all these templates will be the most challenging for me. Then I will be able to start the fun part of embroidery and embellishing.

Beautiful palette, and the pinks fit right in. I actually think I like this rose background better than the last one. =)
