craftapalooza #envelopesquilt still thinking on this @ava_and_neve 🙄 made one block. Hand pieced it. Man those itty bits are itty I'd use this #liberty print with 3-4 different solid accent prints choosing best one to suit the liberty. What do you think @ava_and_neve ?? And my white print is Architextures by @carolynfriedlander #sewliberty #libertyenvelope 2w

craftapalooza This is my wacky western steam punk block. I LOVE wood grain prints. Think this one is a #joeldewberry print and the #denyseschmidt posies AND that western scene print is fantastic. So even though this colour scheme is not a norm for me I'm loving it. #steampunkqal #steampunkquiltalong #steampunkquilt #spqcraftapalooza block 40 second last block for me. I'm not doing half blocks on the boarders as per the pattern. 3w
  •   bluebeehive Love it!! 3w
  •   stitchyaddiction Loooove this one xx 3w
  •   wobblybobbin @craftapalooza one of my favorite parts of working on my steampunk was how each block was its own little color study - i fell in love with brown and never looked back Do you have your sashing picked out? 3w
  •   craftapalooza Hey. So true!! I think I'm going to use a light grey hatch by @carolynfriedlander I've ordered it so will see when it arrives. Going off to check out yours now. @wobblybobbin 3w
  •   clementineshoes My mother has, in her quilting stash, a small section dedicated to not just faux timber, but stone & brick walls and roof tiles. Surreal stuff! 3w
