Have I mentioned I love lace?
And what are my plans for all this lace?..... CQJP2016 of course. This 2008 block was mine when CQI used donated wedding dresses to make blocks for quilts for breast cancer fund raising. I loved doing the white on white and want to explore it further. So that is what my focus will be for next year. Now that I am finishing the CQJP2015 I am eager to start getting ready for next year. If you are considering participating next year, registration is about over. This is a completely personal challenge allowing stitchers at any level to hone their skills. People from all over the world are involved and share their work.
It's a wonderful opportunity to make friends world wide and see work that is truly inspirational.
