My first crazy quilt block. I thought I was going to keep it with just whites and creams, but these browns and greens leaped into my pile too…

This is a photo of my grandpa (future big band leader in previous post!) as a young boy. Love those Edwardian poses and clothes for kids!

Put a tiny piece of my wedding dress lace in there, and some Egyptian fabric to remember my trips round the world (spend a month in Egypt…)

I plan to keep the colors in a brown/green/cream/white pallette, for a theme of “family tree”, so “earthy” colors, “tree” colors!

This will be sent out for a CQ round robin, so no embellishing…that is for RR folk to do…I get my first block to embellish soon, that lovely quilt top over at Barbara’s blog! Posted by Picasa
