Brinda's block arrived with wonderful stitching by Kim. I liked the larger scale she had used, and I love her creations.
First, I stitched a seam treatment to blend the two solid materials of the brown and orange and create a softer transition. I used two threads together so the colors would blend unevenly.
You can see the metal heart charm Kim added to her spider web.
oops, I took the pic with the heart upside down.
Because Kim's butterfly was big and bold, I felt something was needed on the narrow orange fabric that would match its weight visibly.
I decided to attempt a 3-D flower.
Not wanting to add another color, I chose a variation of the orange for a tone on tone effect.
It's hard to capture the color variations and thread clearly.
I carried the orange further along this piece with the addition of two heart beads. This continues the heart theme Kim began with her metal charm.
see the tatted centipede?
I added seed beads in all the block colors, and a crystal to the silk ribbon embroidered seam treatment.
To add a touch of whimsy, three tatted centipedes chase each other around the seams of the two fabric pieces I embellished.
This block was fun and fast. I sure hope Brinda likes it, and I can't wait to see what she adds to the final fabric piece!
It's flying to India!
Thanks for visiting.
