Heirloom Romance Purse Block

I finished the first of 8 Heirloom Romance purse embroidery blocks and really like the way it turned out--plus it was fun to do--I'm sure when I add the beads, it will even be more fun, but can't do that until I figure out if I'm going to quilt this one or not. Old time crazy quilts were not quilted, but tied off, (from what I have read) so I may do something along that line, just don't know yet! I can't seem to make up my mind.

The second picture shows the purse block with some of the crazy blocks around it--some of them will have embroidery on them,too.

This quilt is different from any other that I have done and I find myself consumed with it--it's all I want to work on! I need to quilt some Project Linus quilts, but haven't had the urge to do that--must get on the ball and start doing that again! I have plenty of tops done, but it's that same old story -- more tops done than I have quilted!!! Maybe I can remedy that this week!

Let quilting help you make someone smile!
