My seam,Margaret’s block

Originally uploaded by katiejayinpa

Margaret hb and i are in a cq round robin. She sent a lovely lovely block all in blue and cream from silks and other fabrics. It’s small and delicate. I wanted to try my hand at Fargo roses. As you can see i didn;t quite get them down pat……. i added some buttonholing on the bottom petals to add a little color. also a french knot from rayon thread into the center of each rose for more color. above the roses is an arch of pearls and silk ribbon leaves. i wish i was as good at this stuff as Margaret’s block calls for.
