    These blocks were made by a new member of our Sewing club here in Spain. I thought they were so different I asked if I could post them here for you all to see the fabulous work she did.
    They are I suppose Crazy blocks with fibre art, different for sure.

    There are quite a few so bear with me whilst I post them.

    This is Yvonnes work

    I have just hunted out a book I bought ages ago by Judith Baker Montano called Art Insiprations and the work in there is very similar only some have been made into clothes. Really nice book to have

    Beautiful work. Lovin' those dragonflies with the ribbon wings. I do silk embroidery and appreciate how much time consuming work went into these. My compliments to her!! Lovely!!

    I love the look of a crazy quilt with the different types of fabric and embellishments. All I have is cotton fabric, even for clothing. Anyone know of a place that sells scrap bags of good quality pieces that include velvet, satin, jaquard, etc.?

    Tell her I think they are beautiful!! I'd really like to do something like that, but I don't have the imagination to design.

    Will pass them on, thanks. there is a lot of work in each block. I donīt know if its going to end up as a quilt or if she is making some small needle cases out of each block. Also she had some little bags she had made from them as well. Must ask.

    Beautiful pieces. I wish I had the patience to do something like this. I just want to make an old fashioned crazy quilt and can't even make myself get started on that. Maybe someday.
