2010 ArtBra Block completed

Here is the final of my 2010 ArtBra block....I shared its beginning, I also would to share some other details of what I have done lately.
In my previous post the blades of the fan were ready, I pieced the other part with some contrast colors. I believe after another experience that the paper piecing method is a life saver for those who doesn't like to use machine like me....
This photo shows my naked block. After piecing a block I always get so excited to embellish. I get all neat embellishments together and start:))
As I always say so, I love to create seam treatments instead of using trims. But, this time I used trims because they were so neat, especially beaded oya lace looked so pretty on that dark color fabric.
I like to use every kind of pearls, these pale blue pearls looked so pretty on this seam treatment along with those sequins... If I've used white they won't look like them. The harmony of the flat type oyas were perfect on the silk turquise fabrics.
I used several oya flowers that they are pretty new creations. Especially pale mint colors are looked so neat with my fabrics. These new oyas with lovely colors will be available at my Etsy store soon. Most of the metallic threads are Gutterman or Kreinik. Those flat type sequins and little charms were in my stash for a long time, aren't they look nice on that turquise background? Those glass beads are from my local bead shop, I used several of them on the various patches.
At top, left side, the little silver charms with carnation shapes are from a local bead shop, as well. The ribbons are also from our local market, I could make more SRE but, I didn't want to complete that area, otherwise I could miss all warm colors.
It was so nice to prepare another block for another great project. I hope I'll be able to participate more meaningful projects on the coming years. Special thanks for everyone who contribute on 2010 ArtBra Wallhanger project.

I love anything with fans, Rengin, and this one came out gorgeous. I love the colors you chose. I especially like the peach colored trim with the white beads. I assume that's the one you called "beaded oya lace", right? Very well done!

Your block is absolutely beautiful, Rengin. The oyas add such a special touch and your needlework is always fabulous. This is another beautiful creation!

Ladies,
Thanksso much for your nice words.
This is first time that I worked with these colors, it is obvious that I must create other blocks with these colors to spend my other embellishments with turqoise color tones:))

Rengin, your block is absolutely gorgeous! And as always your seams and embellishments of the block is fantastic. Just love all the oya lace and flowers you have used.

How wonderful to see your beautiful work again. This turquoise is my favorite color, so you have me just immersed in staring at your block. I hope life is treating you well, my friend!

Hi Rengin!
Another gorgeous block by one of my favorite ladies! Your work is stunning. Turquoise has always been my favorite color and you have outdone yourself with the color combination. I have my oyas from you and have been having the hardest time letting go of them but after seeing how you used them in this block I will have to try.
Thank you for sharing.
