Take It Further May - Block

I finished up my 23rd button block the other day:

Button Block 23

I still have a long way to go on this project as I want it to be quite large. I'm still thinking I'll need between 80 - 100 blocks.

I'll take a break from it for a bit and do my Take It Further block for May. I did a bit of treadling the other day and this is now ready to stitch on:

Take It Further May

My Take It Further blocks will also be sewn into a quilt at the end of the year. As I mentioned in my last post, I don't like to define myself in any way but as a channel through which the creativity of the Universal Mind flows. This block won't have a predetermined theme but instead, will go where ever it goes. I do have a beautiful vintage crystal pin that matches that periwinkle blue fabric perfectly. I'm not sure yet if I'll be using it but it is in the back of my mind.

All your button blocks and TIF blocks are absolutely beautiful.
80-100 blocks with tons of buttons on it will make a quite heavy quilt in the end ;-)
Still a long way to go but I can't wait to see it!

This one's quite nice, too. Where do you find so many pretty laces? LOL!

I have been printing pictures of your button blocks - I hope that is okay. I'm putting them with your seam treatments book - for inspiration.
