Oh those words looks so insignificant on the screen but they mean a lot and I am doing more than a simple happy dance. I have to assemble the quilt which I will do but not until life settles a bit (mainly because I take over the dining room to do it) but the blocks are all made now.
If you click on the photo you will be take to a page that displays a larger photo.
It is in strong colours and similar to block 41. After doing so many blocks in muted colours I enjoyed working these last two blocks.
Once again I used up and down buttonhole feather stitch and added detached chain stitches, and cast on stitch flowers.
I also got a heck of a kick making these button tassels. I worked a zig zag line of chain stitch (marked out using my stencils) then added detached chain stitches and straight stitches on all the peaks and valleys. I next added blue buttons in the spaces between the peaks and valleys and then went to town with the beads. it was fun!
