CQJP 2013

here is my block for the CQJP challenge for the merry month of May.   Forget me knots and daisies are out in the garden so here are some of mine,  the sheep are out grazing in the fields still with their woolly coats on and the children have been dancing around the maypole,   sorry about the stick people,   not good enough to do real ones!!.  The orange tatting is from instructions for tatted lace from Suzats,   thank you Sus. Afraid the crochet butterfly is a little on the large size but that is why one of the reasons for the block being crazy!!

Thank you for all your comments on the quilt show photos, if you want me to upload more please let me know.

If you ask me, I could look at more pics if you have some of the quilt show!

This is a very lovely block you made. I love the stichtery (or do you only say embroidery?) and all those tiny and cute details. You must be very patient.

Hi Margaret! Your block is full of May delights. I love them all!

Nice block with many things that represent May. Of course things should be 'out of proportion'; it's a cq block, after all.

What a lovely assortment of techniques you have used on this block . The merry little butterfly and the black and white sheep are my favorites !

This is quite cute, Margaret! I love the sheep, and the fish in the pond! You are keeping up quite well. :)

I think your block is terrific. There wouldn't be much room for anything but stick people anyway. :) Your last post of quilt pictures was wonderful. So many beautiful quilts! It must have been a wonderful show. I hope the lady who lost 8 quilts got 7 of them back!

Happy stitching,
Susan in Texas

Hi Margaret, love your block! I have been struggling with the exact butterfly, determined to get it right. Do hope you have a good summer - we are getting chillier, ready for winter her in South Africa.

I like the stick people. This block suits the month of May.

Your block is adorable! The blue flowers gave me the perfect idea to help complete my first crazy-quilted purse. I added a link to your blog in my post about my purse. Thank you for the inspiration!
