Calendar Cover Block

I was thinking, ya'll might like to see the entire block that I used on the cover of the 2018 Crazy Quilt Calendar:

Purple Crazy Quilt Block
The hanky in the center is a gift from a friend.  The bird brooch on the right is also a gift from her.  It's vintage too!

Here it is sewn into a pillow:

Purple Crazy Quilt Pillow
This is a 9 inch block.  I crocheted the trim with some fancy fun yarn and then hand-attached it along the edge of the pillow.  I really like the crocheted edgings with the cool fuzzy yarn!

And here it is on the calendar cover:

Have a safe and fun 3 day weekend everyone!  I'll be back on Tuesday!

Hermoso trabajo. Cuánta paciencia. Me encanta el crazy quilting, pero no tengo la habilidad.

Sorry about the calendar contest. I had originally intended to enter. Then I had trouble with a pinched nerve that made it hard to hold a needle. By the time that was better, too late for me to stitch a block. "Kinky Boots" sounded like a possibility for a CQ block.

Eugenia, Gracias por tu cumplido. Se necesita cierta práctica para hacer quilting loco. ¡Es realmente muy fácil una vez que usted consigue el cuelgue de él!

¡Gracias otra vez y tenga un día agradable!

Marci, I hope your hand is better now. I've had that happen. Thankfully, it doesn't happen very often!
