This is a lovely RR, indeed. Lovely pieced blocks are so nice, it is great joy to play with them. When I saw Freda's lovely blocks, I couldn't decide to chose one, because all of them were so nice. I was together with my mother, she is a lilac color lover, she suggested me to pick up this lovely one.
I think, it was a really good decision because I found so many neat items from my stash and started to work.
My chronic hand problem still exist. I tried to make a fargo roses but I couldn't pull-out the needle with my weak right hand fingers, it was painful try for me, indeed... Some kind of muslin fabrics are so tight unfortunately I'm unable to do SRE on fabric+muslin together. But, as I decided to make a spray on the left side. I did spider roses with hand dyed silk ribbons.
There was a long patch on the top, I did a long seam treatment. I must admit that I've spent hours to make it:)) I used mostly main colors of the block, I did contrasts with those colors.
That lovely dyed lace was on the block, sewn by Freda. I added soft lilac tone pearls on it. And added vintage charms at the bottom.
This photo shows my work on the block, I liked its colors so much and worked easily. I hope Freda likes what I did.
