30 days seem to race by very quickly. It's the beginning of the month and the next thing I know it's the end of the month.
As usual, the block isn't completely done. There is more I could add but ideas are just not coming to mind.
I'm a bit disappointed with the transfer pencil I used for the center embroidery. It didn't transfer as clean as I had expected and there's a light red shadow under my stitches.

Here is February's block. I had it finished in time but didn't get it posted in time. Changing cell phones doesn't help.
I'll probably add more to this block at a later date when I decide what it is I want to add to it.
I found some gathered lace with button centers in the scrapbook section of Hobby Lobby. I like how the placement looks like a terrier's face.

Here's my first crazy quilt block for this year. All the fabrics are 100% cotton on a muslin base. The blocks are 11" square unfinished but will end up being 9"-10" finished.
I'm using these blocks as my practice pieces. With cotton, I can draw the designs on the fabric which I can't do on the velvets, satins, and brocades of the 2014 CQ project which still needs to be finished.
