CQ Project February 2014 "Lovely Ladies" Sampler

Sharing my February Crazy Quilt Block for my "Lovely Ladies Sampler" for 2014. This was originally a much smaller block with just a triangle center. I totally re-constructed it, removing elements and added more fabric so I could begin again. Why? You may think.  Well I loved the images and liked where I had began but needed it larger as I wanted to use it in this years Sampler. I started thinking I was going to create a Fabric book but after seeing a few I changed my mind as I feel that it will have a larger impact as a CQ Sampler. I'm really glad I switched gears as now I'm on my March CQ block and can see it will come together beautifully. It was actually more work to re-construct than it was to start from scratch but I didn't want two of  anything with the same image, made sense to me:)
Well as you can see this is what I do with my evening hours as in the daytime I create totally different types of Art, mixed media, paper clay projects, and fabric/paper projects along with my swap groups I participate in and one I host.  Tags, ATC's and Paper Dolls are a fun way to keep creative and expand your knowledge with techniques and new supplies/mediums.
Hope you all have a great weekend, regardless of what you love to do:)

So beautiful Marilou!
I agree that the sampler would be the better choice too so that your beautiful crazy quilt squares can be seen!
Hugs,
