Crazy Quilt Purse

After running a few errands yesterday morning and watering my plants, and pulling a few weeds (no shortage on those), I spent the rest of the day just stitching on a new crazy quilt purse project:

I thought it would be nice to work in more traditional Victorian colors than what I normally work with.  I don't know when I sewed this block up but I pulled it from my basket of ready to stitch on blocks.

I may finish up the stitching today since all I have on my to do list is to run for some groceries.  I may bake some muffins this afternoon too.

You have been busy - but that is a good thing to take your mind off your loss for a bit.
I like the idea of having blocks made up in advance to make CQ blocks. But how do you know what colours to use? I can only think of making blocks up when I know in advance what the end result is supposed to look like!

A very "rich" piece!
What are the sheer leaves behind the butterfly?

Ooohhh, a crazy quilt purse! I've always wanted to make one of those -- are they difficult? And do you follow a pre-made pattern, or did you create your own?

Loving the colors you used. :)

Your wedding angel is beautiful. I am sure the bride will love it and cherish it forever, reminding her of her special day.

Take care
