This week I'll be showing you my July block for my CQJP. Here is how it started with a doily and some hand dyed lace trim on one of the seams.
I puzzled over how to stitch the doily and decided on this block I would use it as a background only. I could always add to it once I decide how the blocks will be sewn together. So, I started with a cluster of flowers - spider web roses in pinks and purples and scattered french knots in various widths of silk ribbon. I've scattered more french knots in various threads.
I also added a dragonfly using dagger bead wings. More on Wednesday.
