Encrusted RR block home.

Here you see my "naked" 12 inch block which I have sent away about 5 months ago.
Below that how it came back to my house today.
I am overwhelmed by the work those members of the CQI group have done on my 'garden' block.
I have never seen in real Brazilian embroidery and so many flowers, french knots and beautiful seams.
Cobi, Gerry, Leslie and Maire, Thank you sóóó much !!!!

If you like to see a real "large" photo her is a link, then you see all the beautiful details.

That has got to be the most beautiful CQ block I have ever seen! Wow. It certainly shows how stitching makes the block!

This block is so amazing! I keep coming back to look at it! It's like a secret garden with so many exquisite little details to discover!

Susan said...

I like your block better. Maybe because it's a little more open? The work on it is really beautiful!
