Jewels on Black Block for Hideko

Today I was really in a stitching mood and did this block for Hideko as part of our Crazy Quilting International Jewels on Black Round Robin. Hideko had pieced the blocks in black and gray and requested that we use primarily black, silver and gold stitching, with some red accents.

I had never worked with just these colors before and thought it would be difficult, but the ideas kept coming and before I knew it, I was out of room. It was so much fun and a good stretch for me (since I really love warm, bright, rich colors). I hope I showed enough restraint and that Hideko likes it!
