Kathy's CQ Block

Here are a couple of pictures of the work that I did on Kathy's block for the Royal Blue Group for the Blue Color Study on CQ for Newbies. The first picture is of a sea treatment that I did. It has a light blue cotton DMC herringbone stitch with french knots and glass butterfly beads.

This next picture shows another sea treatment and two patches. The seam was done in perle cotton #5 and is a feather stitch. The patch on the right is a herringbone circle with lazy daisy silk ribbon flowers and sequins with beads. The patch on the left is encrusted with beaded roses, blue buttons, lazy daisy silk ribbon flowers, french knot flowers, and yo-yo flowers with beaded centers.

Below is a picture of the whole block. I was the first one to work on this!

Wow! Great job! And a herringbone in a circle, what a neat idea. I love the beaded roses too!
