FFT#6 on CQI - Dakotah's Block

Here is another crazy quilt block from the round robin on Crazy Quilt International. Dakotah's block is absolutely gorgeous. I love the purples, greens, and maroons.

Here is one seam treatment. I added 4mm silk ribbon in green to the lace that was already on the block. I also did straight stitch maroon flower pots with straight stitch leaves in green and lazy daisy flowers in purple.

Here are two more seam treatments. There is a maroon herringbone stitch with a metallic thread straight stitch across the junction. Also, I added white flower shaped beads with purple bead centers, straight stitch leaves, and maroon berry french knots.

Here is a patch with purple and ivory silk ribbon flowers and beaded roses. Although it is hard to see, there is also feather stitch greenery.

I also added a silk ribbon basket of flowers. The flowers are made with purple and ivory silk ribbon and maroon french knots.
