Work in Progress Wednesday

Ah!  Summer, a time for slowing down.  My spring was pretty busy but I don't have much on my calendar for the summer and I am relieved.  I now have time to think about the San Fransisco School of Needlework and Design summer challenge.  The theme is burlesque.  I looked up the definition for inspiration.
bur·lesqueˌbərˈlesk/
noun1.

"the funniest burlesque of opera"

2.
a variety show, typically including striptease.
"burlesque clubs"
verb
1.
cause to appear absurd by parodying or copying in an exaggerated form.
"she struck a ridiculous pose that burlesqued her own vanity"

The word exaggerated gave me the inspiration to let out my inner magpie.  Go for the glitz!  I am planning a crazy quilt block with the above fabric.  The two on the end are absolutely stunning but I am not sure if they play nicely with the other fabrics.  Possibly I could make them work together, not sure.
