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!


  1. 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.

  2. 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

  3. 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.

  4. 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!

  6. Love this! And that Halloween piece is just too cute!

  7. brown is good....warm and comforting....
