Progress - of quilt block & more

Quiltmania/Colmar, quilt block 1 nearly finished

I have been working on the first quilt block via Quiltmania's youtube videos (colmar mystery quilt),
and have been learning and practicing appliqué, trapunto, embroidery embellishment and more..

some flower bud embellishment

and it all begun ( as projects do)  very humbly, as I pieced together fabrics...determined to use fabric which I already had on hand....

not knowing how it would look - or whether I had chosen properly...

but by just starting, and stepping out, and learning,  this  has become

this :)   life is like that, no? :)   

Not as though I had already attained, either were already perfect: but I follow after, if that I may apprehend that for which also I am apprehended of Christ Jesus.
Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before,
I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.  
philippians 3:12-14


  1. It is beautiful and you've done a wonderful job. I just got my copy of Quiltmania and seeing your block is making me think I should make this quilt too!

  2. Your star is wonderful, flowers and embroideries are so well done.

  3. The difference in the two last pictures is dramatic! What a lot of work you have put into this block, and wow, what a result. I just LOVE embroidery stitching on quilts!

  4. Your block is beautiful! I've never made a mystery quilt before because I have such a hard time deciding what fabrics to use. You've convinced me that I should make this one - using fabrics I love and hoping it all turns out for the best. Can't wait to see how your quilt turns out!
