a naked cq block
I mentioned a couple of posts ago about the wonderful fabric I received from my SS, and also in an even earlier post about fabric and trims from the Christmas stocking swap. I'm happy to say that I've assembled a block for cq-ing, and I'm on my way to learning something new. I've sewn this before in cottons, and have used a few decorative stitches from my sewing machine, but this one will be different. There will be embellishments added, and plenty of embroidery work.
Now for the decisions. Do I want the little cameo (I'm thinking it's called a cabechan, or something like that, but not sure) in the center of the red piece?
Or maybe off to one side?
Or maybe turn it the other way and have it centered?
Stay tuned, and see what happens.
