My Newest CQ Creation!

I thought I had blogged about this Crazy Quilt piece that I made for my good friend Elaine, but going back though my blog, I find that I never did! I cannot believe I didn't share this piece with all of you!

My good friend Nicki hosted yet another one of her CQ One Block Swaps over on the HGTV Quilting and Needlework Forum and I could not pass up the chance to participate!  Elaine's name was drawn for me and I was estatic!  I had been wanting to create a piece for her and now was my chance! No more excuses...no more putting it off!!

Elaine had joked around with me the entire time I was creating Allie's piece for her birthday in 2010.  She kept begging for it and I kept saying no.  So I decided to incorporate a few of the same design options as I put in Allie's.  They are still incredibly different and Elaine loves her piece as much as she would have loved getting the piece I made for Allie.

And in the end, that is all that matters right!

This is a beautiful block I think my favorite part is the french knot hair! Great use of texture.

It is beautiful and no words can describe how honored I am to be the new owner of this block.

Thearica is right...I hounded her about Ali's block and begged her to send it it to ME !!!Of course each time I talked to her I had to ask for it again and of course each time she told me NO NO !!
So when it came time for the CQ block swap I was thrilled and ecstatic that my block was going to be made my wonderful friend Thearica !!

I thought there would be no way she would be able to make another as beautiful as Ali's or be able to devote so much time to my block. I was wrong,very wrong.

The stitches, motifs, lace, beads are breathtakingly gorgeous and I know that every French knot, every golden thread and every stitch are made with love. I will always treasure it as I do my friendship with Thearica !!
