Next crazy quilt profject - beginning

Yesterday I pieced together the parts I need to make another purse.  Brown isn't usually my 'comfort' colour to work with, but we'll see how I get along.  Here's a picture of one of the pieces...


Obviously, with the blue background on the image, I will be letting some blue creep into this one too!

And, entirely off my usual topic/radar...mainly because I'm not a big fan of Halloween.... I have stumbled across this and am utterly amazed by the talent required to create something this small!  I've always been interested in miniatures so this caught my eye. Be sure you follow the links to read all her posts about the project so you can see how she did it.   Found via Laura HERE (be sure to check out the piece she did too).  Laura is even giving hers away!

It's always good to get out of one's comfort zone. I like the brown and blue goes well with it. I'm not that big on Hallowe'en either although I do like the dress-up part.

Oh you're such a clever clogs MA!!!
I mean that in the nicest way as I would love to be able to crazy quilt.

I'm not a brown girl as I had a brown school uniform for years - but the variation you've used with the blue angel fabric the focal point - it's lovely!

Have a fun weekend

Brown and blue is GOOD! I always love your work, so I'm sure you will have the perfect balance in color.

Thanks for the links. I haven't gone there yet, but I LOVE Halloween and never get enough of Halloween needle art.
xx, Carol

Well I actually like the brown tones here Mary Anne especially when you combine them with shades of blue to complement your sweet centre!
Have a lovely Sunday!
And thanks for your kind comment!
