Crazy Quilt Class at Huntsville in July - Part One

Of late, I've been working on a crazy quilt class and lecture for the Madison Quilt Guild, near Huntsville, Alabama in mid July.  The lecture has a slide presentation, and I'm cutting down my normal about 3-4 hours of things to one hour to accommodate their normal meeting times. It's hard to reduce! And, even though that has taken some time, it's not something easily shared, I've been absent a little.
On the Saturday after their meeting, we're having a "normal" crazy quilt class. I thought a new block was in, I'm working on a neutral cotton block that measures about 8 x 11. 
Above, the embroidery portion is complete. Below, the lace and charms have been added.

Next, I'm working on the silk ribbon...then comes the beads/sequins. So, I'll be back when more is accomplished to share photos.

Kathy-Boy, do I agree with you about how hard it is to reduce-in more ways than one!lol! Your new block is lovely, and I really like your post about the appliqué/outline figure of the dolphin. Thank you for your generosity in sharing it and the kitty patterns, it is so effective in the monochromatic color scene! Good luck with your lecture, Amy in LA
