I was the second person to work on Zurn’s block for the round robin at Fibre Fever. Her block arrived at my home with Hideko’s lovely stitches. You can take a closer look at them at Hideko’s blog.
I started with the lace in the top right corner, it was a gift from Maureen earlier this year. I attached it with woven detached chain stitches, colonial knots and beads.
The next seam is done with a combo of wrapped coral stitch, slipped detached chain stitch and thorn stitch. I added beads to represent flowers.
Then I stitched a buttonhole eyelet flower on the seam connected to Hideko’s lace and . . .
. . . stitched feather stitches from both directions to the buttonhole eyelet flower.
I added colonial knots to the arms.
The last seam is decorated with organza ribbon and French knots.
The butterfly is needle tatted by me, the body is a bullion knot.
