Butterfly Block Complete

Did you ever solve a crazyquilt embellishment problem and then find yourself eager to use it again on something else? That's what happened last night with this 6 inch block:

Lace Butterfly Block

I needed something at the top of the feather stitch. I tried several things but nothing worked. I still had my Mother Of Pearl buttons out from doing the little button and bead cluster to the right. Suddenly, I just knew what to do! Those 4 little MOP buttons remind me of a spray of Lily Of The Valley. This block is complete now and I'll be sewing it into a little handbag.

This one will be my next block. I believe it's 6 inches by 8 inches and will be another little handbag. The floral spray is from a vintage hankie.

Pink Hankie CQ

I'm working on the finishing of my Strawberry block today. I have the borders and the lace on so now to layer it and bind it. I do plan on starting the Pink Hankie Block later today.

Coming tomorrow: 3 more Blackwork designs!

I think I'm going to use that feather stitch idea! I've added it to my file!
