Flower Fairy - Tansy

In the Flower Fairy round robin I'm in for Crazy Quilting International, I have just finished up a block for Karrin H. In this RR, we get to select one of six fairy blocks she pieced, then stitch and embellish it for her. Because the Tansy Fairy was one of my favorite fairies, and one that I included in the blocks I pieced, I just had to select this one. Such possibilities! Such happy colors!




So........... I stitched her garden area for her



And of course, while I labored about stitching on the block, she finished another coat!

Ilove what you have done with this block. The little sweater was a great idea. When I get this patch off my eye I will come back and have a better look at it all.

This tansy fairy is really sweet. I love how you extended the yellow flowers beyond the seam...and I loved the use of all the eyelash yarn...I really felt like she is smaller, walking among the grass...very cool!

Hi Cathy, I do not write often but your blog is one of the only four, including my Mom's and sister's that I have in my favorites and I visit often. I find your fairy block delightful, such great ideas ! I look at the threads and stitches and wonder how you did them. I love the fantasy world and here your imagination has done wonders! Congratulations on such lovely work!
