Center Medallion of the Velvet Hex
Here is a snap of my Crazy Quilt Journal Project (CQJP) that I started designing in February of 2012, when I first found the CQJP 2012 on-line. I joined the CQJP 2013 and CQJP 2014 to make the 13 hexes, 6 half-hexes and 24 triangles. I finished making all the medallion blocks and pieced the center 7 hexes in 2015 using the English Paper-Piecing method. During my medical leave from work, I worked on the embroidery for seam embellishment. In the spring of 2016 I added the center border triangles with the black velvet to complete the center medallion. I joined the CQJP 2016 to work on the border triangles, I need 56 of them in all. I still have to embellish the seams on the next row of hexes and half-hexes - it make take a while, since it is too big to bring to work - so I bring the border triangles. This snap was taken in Elk Lake, PA by fellow quilter Debbie C. of Binghamton, NY. I am behind the CQ holding it up for show and tell at the National Quilt Day Celebration, sponsored by A Stich in Time quilt club of Montrose, PA.
