黒のクレージーキルト Black CQ

Today I had a big pleasant suprise from Gerry Krueger in US. She sent me beautiful black embellishments for the new black RR called "Jewels on Black RR". She added a lovely thanks note for my newsletters of CQI. Thank you very much for your RAOK, Gerry.

クレージーキルトを始めた頃、最初は本を見て一人でやっていましたが、Christine Dabbs という人の本で見た「黒」はずっとやってみたかったテーマでした。ちょっとだけステッチの色の効果を試したものは以前、お見せしたことがありますが、何といってもJo が素晴らしい作品を作っていますので、黒のクレージーの魅力はそこでごらんになるといいと思います。
I have been interested in black CQ since I saw Christine Dabb's works in her book. I have tried some seam stitches on black. But you can see wonderful black cq blocks in Jo's blog.

This might be one of my black CQs though unfinished. I am now going to complete it by March when we'll have a small CQ exhibition here. I practised lots of fans here, so titled this work "Lady Windermere's Fan".

Also I have a couple of naked blocks below. I am planning to embellish them in gold, silver and red.

Love the quilt with all the fans Hideko. I am sure the black block become nice too!
Your baggie is on its way.

Oh Hideko, what beautiful embellishments! What can I say about your blocks, they are just beautiful.

I love the fan block, and the name is perfect! You came up with *so many* wonderful fan embellishments! That will be a great piece to show. I look forward to seeing the new blocks embellished. That bag of goodies could come in handy!

Your work is beautiful! I enjoy working with black as well and loved seeing your wonderful creations and embellishing.

Thank you for all of your kind comments. I made this work from the kit I bought from Darsie Bruno just before she left CQ. It's a kind of memory of mine. I arranged the fabrics, threads, silk prints chosen by her. Some embellishments are my choice.
