Breast Cancer Block



It feels so good to have gotten something accomplished again,,it's been such a long time. This is my embellished block that will be sent to Leslie who will be making a quilt. Many talented Ladies are partaking of this wonderful opportunity and I feel honored to be a part of the group. If I understand correctly, the quilt will travel for a year and then be auctioned off and the monies given for breast cancer research. I know I probably don't have this info correct,,but anyways I was pleased to be a part of it.

I found the neatest little charms at Hobby Lobby that I thought made the block .


I don't know why I chose to try new stitches working on this block,,but I did..
here is the bullion. It was suppose to look like a rose bud but it didn't turn out quite right,,but I think it looks ok.



And here is the whipped circle.

I hope it doesn't take me as long to post a message for next time,,hope you enjoyed looking.

How very pretty the block is. I love your bullion stitches. I think they look like just barely open roses. You did a wonderful job!

Very lovely block, and isn't it great to have a new technique in your repituoir? There are SO many things you can do with them...you can see a few of my first attempts here http://tinyurl.com/589oyz.
