This is the crazy quilt block that I have submitted for this months CQJP. It was completed awhile back so I am reposting some of the close up pictures in case any of you wander over from the CQJP blog.
The center flowers are an organza two toned (blue/brown) ribbon stitched using a gathered stitch with small fern like leaves coming out from the center. The main teal colored bridal lace was hand dyed and embellished with 2 colors of pearl beads and accented with Hanna silk ribbon. The flower cluster to the upper right has 3 main loop flowers with lazy daisy stitched with a Bullion tip flowers. The little white leaves are actually sequins and some of the buttons in the cluster towards the bottom right are antiques that I received as a gift from my daughter this past Christmas.
I also have a small correction to make from my last post. That is actually block number 11 that is completed on my CQJP. I miss counted. Opps....Everyone have a wonderful and safe 4th of July.
