Patchwork Challenge

At my monthly patchwork group at Quorn Country Crafts in Loughborough, we were given a challenge for the Jubilee.  We were given 2 pieces of fabric one red and one blue and the instructions were to use these fabrics along with anything else and make something in red, white and blue.

I've been wanting to have a go at crazy patchwork for a little while and thought this would be a good opportunity so after a little research decided to make two blocks and use them for the front and back cover for a note book.

The base is foundation pieced and then the blocks are embellished with embroidery, lace, ribbon, beads and buttons,  or you can use anything else that you come across.

Here is the finished result :-

I'm quite pleased with the finished result.
