New Crazy Quilt Challenge for 2020














This is the start of a new crazy quilt for a challenge that Sharon Boggin of http://pintangle.com/  has put out for all those who love to crazy quilt. This is a long term project ending on Dec. 31, 2020. You can find all the details and guidelines about the challenge here: http://pintangle.com/2020-crazy-quilt-guidelines/ I have chosen to make hexagons for my project and will join them at a later date. I think this is very doable given the timeline involved. I will be keeping a stitching journal as well to document my progress as I work on each block. The challenge is to use 2020 different items on your crazy quilt. This can be fabrics, stitches, beads, buttons, laces, trims, motifs, silk ribbon embroidery etc. The goal is to have 2020 different items on your crazy quilt when completed. No duplicates of what you count. You can read more about the challenge on the above link.

Off to a good start and am looking forward to making more throughout this challenge. I can only count the backing once as it will be the same for each block.
