Course Block

The photo of the cq block I'm making for the encrusted cq course I'm taking just disappeared. I hope it returns when I publish this post.

I am not happy with the square. I like the colours. I don't like the shapes and proportions of the pieces. Perhaps I have to make several pieces freehand to understand the process, but I think I prefer making the naked squares using predetermined templates. I feel I have more control that way.

I will try another freehand pieced square using white on white -- the proportions should be less bothersome to my eye. I will also retry the same colour combination in a templated square and see how I feel about that.

I spent the whole day stitching and time just flew. I'll see how much I can get done tomorrow before we go to the baby shower.

I swear I commented on the square this morning. I really like the colours.
