Nightowl posts more crazy quilt squares!

So here are three more crazy quilt squares. These have already flown the coop, on their way to my Yahoo group members of the Sparkly Chickens! I really like the little star bead with the face on it on the black and white square. I'm not sure which months these are for. I've lost track of which ones I've claimed to have made these for!
I'm adding in a picture of a quilt that I made from a layer cake from Moda, "Rouenierries". I used a pattern from Pam Lintott's book, 'Layer Cakes, Charm Squares and Jelly Rolls.' The book has lots of good ideas and pretty selections of fabric. I'm all about the fabric! I love the tiny 4" house blocks set wonky!
  Till next time, chickadees! Keep quilting!

A few more pix of CQs

 The focus fabric on this one is a fave with me. I love all different types of buttons. They remind me of digging through my mom's and aunts' button boxes.
 I used some recycled ties for this CQ. They have a lot of cool patterns. Both sides usable for different light or dark pattern.
So here are 4, yes 4!, crazy quilt squares. Woohoo!! and likewise, Woot woot! The top CQ is my May entry, the 2nd is for December, the 3rd for September, and the 4th for November. The last pic is my cute grandkid Fiona who was with me when I took the last set of pix. She has her daddy's eyes!

Medium tech quilter meets blogging!

So I'm trying to post a few CQs ready for showing. More later when grandkid Fiona is not on my lap! The top one could be for Sept., the middle for Feb., and the bottom one for June.

It's November already!

    The year is whooshing past again. This time last year, I was getting ready to do my Bead Journal project. Well, time ran away from me as usual. The only beading I've done is on my Crazy Quilt squares. I will try to post a few here to show how they are coming along. They will have to count for the Bead Journal project, just as Sara, Sparkly Chicken friend, is counting hers! Which I will have to post later, since I just discovered that I have no SD slot in my new laptop! Quel horror!

Later, chickadees!
