Work in Progress Wednesday Block 41 done

Block 41 doneOnce again I am exited to report that I have done block 41 in my Lace quilt and I would like to share it with my readers. If you click on the thumbnail you will be taken to larger view of the block.

I found working gin the stronger colours a lot more fun and enjoyed stitching the large floral spray that creeps up the block spilling over the seams and into a number of the patches. I used Up and down feathered buttonhole again. It is TAST stitch 61 and is proving to be a wonderfully versatile stitch.

The middle of each flower I attached a domed sequin. Some people think sequins are tacky but I like thee at they are a bronze and being in a dome shape look very different to normal sequins. The lace flowers are hand dyed. I dipped them in at the same time as I dyed the peril #5 thread I used on the block.

    Your block is gorgeous!

    I finally jumped in to participate, though I have made little progress so far. I get a lot more done on gifts than items I make for myself. It is my hope that WIP Wednesdays provide that extra push I need to finish this project. Thank you for providing the encouragement & support! Here is the link to my post: http://monkeyandmutt.blogspot.com/2014/03/work-in-progress-wednesday.html

    This new block is a joy to look at. The up and down buttonhole with beads and flowers is lovely, but I also like the lace ornament with beads at the right side. Very elegant!

    I still have no focus to experiment with TAST stitches, but stitching the names of the TAST 2012 stitches on the front side of my fabric book in backstitches was easy enough. The front side of my cover is finished, I wrote about it on my blog:

    Love the newest block.
    I finished another hexagon – 4 more for this quilt, and they are in various stages. This quilt WILL BE DONE for my guild’s quilt show in September. The octopus ribbon in the center was a gift from my secret sister. When I first looked at it I thought it was an odd flower, looked again and saw the octopus.

    I just got comfortable with the Up/down buttonhole stitch (well kinda comfortable) and you add a twist to it. Now I have to try that! Thanks for the inspiration.

    I have not heard of a domed sequin before. I will have to look for them.
    My March CQ project is just about finished.

    Your block looks great and I like the sequins, you are right that being some shaped they don’t look like sequins but they make great middles to your flowers

    Here’s my progress this week
