Click on the image to taken to larger view.

Block 66 is a much softer colour scheme. It is part of a light coloured  band  that runs diagonally across the I Dropped the Button Box quilt.  There is a photograph of the full quilt on the CQ details FAQ page and in that you can see the set of the quilt and what I am chattering on about.

Over the next few weeks I will share and write about the embroidery and embellishments in close details. I hope readers will enjoy it. If you dont want to miss out just follow the link to  Subscribe to Pin Tangle by Email and have it delivered to your In Box.
