Ready to Go

At the beginning of the month, I got Candi H's block for the seamy side round robin. This is how it looked when i got it. The seams are huge, wonderful fantasies.
I found it hard to work around the seams because they overlapped so much else, but I got it done. There are still two more people to work on this block, so I left room for them, too. Here's the block after I finished.

Here is a close up of one of the seams. I couched down a green velvet ribbon with French knots and chevron stitches.

This is what I did with the other seam. I made scrolls, added a butterfly, an covered the whole piece of fabric in French knots. A kind of restful place to give the eyes a break.

And finally I put her initials in a small area that needed to be filled. I hope she likes it.
