Well... it is now July, and I am almost done with my CQJP 2016 February block.
For Motif 5, I used a strand of white floss to tack down this lovely white lace motif.
(I am not affiliated with the shop, but I purchased it from crazyquiltingsupplies.com.)
And I was incredibly excited this week when Sharon B.'s Crazy Quilt Templates Set 1 arrived! (I am not affiliated with the shop, but do love the templates!)
I used 3 of the 4 templates to create Motif #6 on my CQJP 2016 February block.
I traced the stem from the center template, the petals from the top template, and the leaves from the bottom template.
I used a coral stitch and a strand of size 8 green pearl cotton on the stem.
Using the same green thread and fly stitches, I added the leaves.
The petals were created with a satin stitch and a strand of size 8 red pearl cotton. (Do not look too closely. I traced one petal a bit too far out and my satin stitching needed some practice!) I added a button to fill in the center of the flower.
I will have more to share (and hopefully a block finish) later this week.
Thank you for stopping by!
