This area of silk ribbon embroidery is on block 61 of the I dropped the Button Box Quilt. The flowers and leaves are made up of leaf stitch, with the centre of the flowers made of French knots. I then added some little blue butterflies that are novelty beads. Sprinkled through out are french knots worked in hand dyed cotton thread.
