CQJP 2017 March Block Motifs 6 & 7

Feather stitched vegetaton accented with petite glass seed beads created motif 6 on my Crazy Quilt Journal Project (CQJP) 2017 block.

Size 12 green perle cotton floss was used for the feather stitches.

Motif 7 was added to both sides of the block. 

Using size 5 variegated perle cotton, I created vines with the barred chain stitch.

The flowers were made with a variegated size 8 perle cotton by making groups of 3 bullion stitches. Straight stitches were placed between the bullion stitches and over the ends where the bullion stitches met the vines.

My progress on this block has been slow, but I am enjoying it!

I am joining the Monday Stitchery Link Party #134 at Super Mom - No Cape! 

CQJP 2017 is a challenge to create a crazy quilt block that is at least 8-inches square in size each month. You may learn more about it and see the blocks completed this year here at the CQJP 2017 blog.

You are so good at these 'under the sea' motifs. The weeds are really swaying in the gentle current. The seahorse has a nice garden!

Beautiful stitching. I think motif 7 is my favourite. There’s something about the way your have created that flow and the perle threadworks So well with it!

Sometimes slow progress is the best! I think I mentioned before how much I love the vine with the bead flowers.

How can I have a favourite when each is so artfully designed and stitched.
Your seahorse is sooo neat.

Hillview Embroidery, thank you! I tried this combination out (in different colors) a couple of years ago and it became one of my favorites, too. Thank you!

What beautiful stitches! I love the vines and flowers and beading!! So much inspiration just in those photos.

I know I've said this before, but I really do need to get back at my underwater scene. I need more time in the day and more days in the week... lol

Thanks so much for linking up to last week's Stitchery Link Party and for the link back. Aloha hugs!
