CQ Journal Projects

I guess it’s time to face the fact that I am no longer a regular blogger. At least, not a regular FREQUENT blogger. Just too busy (and forgetful).  But I will try to be a more regular blogger, even if it means adding another layer of Post-it notes to my desk and computer desktop. HOWEVER, I have made a list of things I need to blog about, and assuming I don’t lose it in the next couple days, I have a lot to show you.

Above is my CQ Journal Project for August.   Remember, I am doing primarily seam stitching (if it looks a bit sparse) so as not to compete with the vintage needlework that these blocks will frame.  Here is a picture to date:

I have four blocks left. The block in the lower right-hand corner is just a stunt double, LOL.  The real block that goes there is the one I am working on for September.  As usual, these blocks are just pinned, and their order may change. And a bit of stitching will be added to cover the connecting seams.  Right now, I’m thinking that those yellow flowers on the left side are too loud (the ones next to the too-loud light pink flower). Must tone them down.

The September block will be done next week (at least that is the plan) and so far I have been able to keep my head above water on the CQJP. I have given up on TAST.

In my next posts, I have some CQ “Snowballs” to show you, some Victorian Ladies Round Robin work, the CQI Retreat in Utah a couple weeks ago, garden goodness and autumn decorations, cool fabric and sewing projects, and more.

Lots of people are giving up blogging for FB. So glad you are still posting. I always think things will slow down after summer, but then I remember..the holidays are creeping up!

It's coming along so nicely! I think there are a lot of bloggers that only blog now and again, you've got to do what's right for you, there's no point blogging because you feel you have to.

I'm looking forward to seeing your finished quilt, I think it will be great.
I don't think that pink and yellow are too bright, but since you do - what about using some of those colors in the remaining blocks?

This is coming along nicely.
I agree about the yellow and pink flowers being a little too light, but what about the yellow flowers on the top block second from the right side?
It is hard to judge from a computer screen. Don't change anything till all the blocks are sewn together.
