Nitetime Needlers Guild - Quilt block one done!

I think I have finished the embellishment of my first block for the Nitetime Needlers Quilt Guild opportunity quilt. Do you think it is done? Does it need more? I don't quite know how much to do because there will be many others doing blocks and I don't know how much they will do. Marci and Pam will probably want to keep the blocks somewhat even in embellishment. I can always add more but it would be hard to remove embellishment.

The colors don't show up as nice as they should in this picture. I haven't figured out how to fix that yet. I can't wait for it to be a finished quilt! I will be buying tickets to win it. Maybe this will be my year to win!

Nitetime Needlers Opportunity Quilt and New Fabric Quilt

My quilt guild before I moved to California, Nitetime Needlers, is in the process of making their guild opportunity quilt. My friends Marci and Pam decided to do a Crazy Quilt. This is so cool!

I was asked to do a couple of blocks for it and I am very proud to do them. Marci sent me two block packets for it.

The colors are very much a dusty mauve/brown/green. I see Pam with these colors. Here are the blocks I pieced. The colors are not really blue. They are more in the purple range. For some reason, my camera didn't really show the correct colors.

While I was looking through my fabric, I found another fabric that I thought would be a good center so I pieced an additional block with it.

On another note, I decided to add an additional row to my current "sane quilt" project. I think it looks better as 3 by 5 blocks. It is going to go on the wall in my stairway.
