I've finished the embellishment of block 4 of the 2020 Crazy Quilt Challenge. This is a six inch block.
I tatted that butterfly long ago when I was teaching myself to tat because I found a tatting shuttle in some of my husband's grandmother's things my mother-in-law gave me. I need to brush up again on some tatting and try some new things for this quilt. The piece of ribbon and eyelet trim was found at the thrift store. I have a giant box of trims I've found at the thrift store over the years - time to use them.
Fabric: 0 (counted in block 1)
Laces/trims: 1/4 inch piece of satin ribbon, eyelet lace, tatted butterfly of white crochet thread 10, 1/4 inch twill tape = 4
Threads: DMC Antique Effects E436; DMC embroidery floss 2 threads of 676, 543 (Sullivan's 45122), 3781 (Sullivan's 45393) = 4 (only counting threads not previously used on blocks like the variegated brown).
Stitches and Stitch Combos: Blanket stitch flowers (over twill tape), pistil stitch x3 cluster, dragonflies (in antique effects thread) = 3
Total new items this block = 12
Grand total items blocks 1 through 4 = 43
How all the blocks of this circle set (blocks 1-4) look together. I'm not sure if they will stay together in the final layout but for now I'm keeping all circle sets together. I'm doing the whole quilt in neutrals from white to black and anything in between. That doesn't include "low volume" fabrics.
This is how the four blocks looked before embroidery.
This is my next circle set to work on.
It will take a month of Sundays (and other days) to finish this crazy quilt but for today linking up to:
