These blocks were so interesting for me. Because all those lovely blocks had been based for the characters of the PBS show Downton Abbey which I didn't have any idea about it! Glad that there were nice details related with character in the RR booklet.
I just used gray, black and white color threads for the seam treatments. I used bugles, sequins, small silver charms and various types of pearls on the seam treatments. I thought to make a white rose spray on the black patch but it has tiny mini sequins on itself, therefor I left it as itself, I worked more on the top and bottom sides.
As I always say so, I like to make chain stitches on the small blocks like this one. I believe that chain sttiches shows seam treatments better.
I tried to catch an elegant look with contrasts with same colors....Silver embellishments looked nice to me with all those base colors. As I told at the begining, I've start with no idea with her PBS show concept, I tried to create an elegant, rich apperance with beads, pearls, etc.. I hope Darlene likes what I did...
