I’m going crazy!  Or at least I’m attempting it.  I’m super excited about having completed my very first crazy quilt block.

I’m still going to want to pick up some embroidery floss and do some detail stitching… unless of course any of my wonderful friends have any extra they would like to get rid of.  Seriously… if you do, I’ll take it.

I’m not quite sure what this block is going to be part of yet.  Right now, I’m still partially finished with a Dear Jane block that I’m in the process of finishing with decorative applique.

It’s kicking my butt.  Mostly, I have no idea what I’m doing and for some reason, I wasn’t able to run this block through my sewing machine.  I kept getting knots in my bobbin thread.  So… hand applique it is.

At least it’ll be good practice for the some of the cool stitching involved in the crazy quilt.

    Love it! Especially the hand embroidered block. Why is it called “Dear Jane”?

      Diane – the hand embroidered block is called a “Dear Jane” because it’s part of the patterns in the Dear Jane Quilt. You can find out more about my project with that quilt here: http://mouseinmypocket.com/2011/11/dear-jane/.

      This is the D-8 block, being in the 4th row down and in the 8th column from the left. The block pattern is officially titled “Dee Dee’s Delight.”
