Work in Progress Wednesday Block 31 completed

block-31I have managed to complete block 31 for my lace quilt. As I mentioned in my last Work in progress report I had been faffing about trying to find the right thing for it. For all that, I am quite happy with how it turned out.

If you click on the photo you will see a larger version of it.

I know people like details so I this time around I thought I would share them with you. The whole block is in dusty pink tones.

The lace on it is vintage lace I was given “towards my next quilt” and I wrote about it here.

This is a spray made of up and down feather stitch and woven detached chain stitch. I added bugle beads in between the forks of the feather stitches.

The hand dyed lace was further emphasised with French knots, seed beads and novelty beads in the shape of butterflies.

This last detail illustrates some of the vintage lace which emphasised with silk ribbon roses and then made bead tassels falling from vintage buttons.

  1. Great effect from the variegated thread in the woven chain sts. – like newly-sprouted leaves. My husband leaned over my shoulder to look at that picture and said, “Looks like a bunch of bugs!”

  2. Amazing detail! I have recently taken an interest in embroidery and love crazy quilts! I want to try my hand at it some day soon. How long does it take you, roughly, to make one square? Even though as an expert, I’m sure it would go much faster for you than a novice like me. 🙂 Your work is inspiring and really beautiful!
