Thank you Linny.  I do love the silk ribbon---the colors are gorgeous.  I am learning so much and am glad I can use it on these blocks.  We are all striving to do better with our skills.

Diane,

Your work is absolutely beautiful.   I'm like Stephanie I love colsinade (can't spell it but like it).   Years ago my aunt gave me a necklace that was made from these type of beads.  But you work is so detailed and filling.  I need to learn how to be more filling.  When I look at your work and Linny's I see how minimalistic my work is.   I've got to work on that in my next project.

Robin

 That is so true, Diane.  It makes a big difference that we are doing this for people we love and want to give them something of ourselves that is our best.  I can't think of a better way to improve our skills than reaching for so noble a goal.  I love it!

Robin--I have noticed that crazy quilting evolves like other types of quilting.  When I learned to crazy quilt years ago, I did less detail as was the style then.  A few years ago "encrusting" became popular.  When I look at my old quilts, they look almost bare!!  I decided to work towards a more detailed work.  You did very pretty ribbon flowers on Stephanie's block.  You have all the skills!

You know Robin---you have so many skills.  I am always amazed at all you can do.  I have no idea how to paper piece.  That quilt is gorgeous!

Thanks, Diane.  Paper piecing is very easy.   If you use a foundation and flip your fabric when you make your crazy quilt squares then you can paper piece it's the same principal.  You just have to remember you are working backwards.

I can so relate to this being evolving. My spring block I was totally focusing on the seams. Then I saw these mags like Pat Winters Gatheriings and took that encrusted CQ class and before I knew it, I wanted to do more! LOL. I love the texture and looking at all the details.

I love what you did on my block Robin. I'm going to treasure it.

I didn't think about it until you posted this comment but I have always focused on the seams when embellishing my CQ. 

Seeing what you ladies have done during this RR, I will be rethinking my methods for future projects.  I want to do something fully embellished which I would like to start soon.  I am so encouraged by what I have seen from this group.  Thank you for this inspiration.

Linny--I love the work you did on Lillie's block.  I love the cotton lace with the gold accents and the buttons look beautiful.  I love the sparkly monogram and the beaded flowers.  The block is really looking beautifully!
