work in progress Wednesday

This is my January block for the 2013 crazy quilt project.  I colored the butterfly with my Pan pastels.  I figure this quilt is not likely to be washed so it should be safe.  I have heard of others using Pan pastels on fabric so I figured it was worth the try.  I also decided to not be a hoarder of special things.  When in France I picked up the blue and purple trim that is in about the middle of the block.  It is so pretty it deserves to be used and not saved.  I also bought the sequins at a flea market in Paris.  I sure hope I can get this block done by the end of January.  I hate to start off the year and be behind right away!

Congratulations! You have made some good choices; colouring the butterfly and moving pretty things from the stash to the quilt top. Whenever you see this quilt, in the future, you will remember all these things. Have fun!
