Today I finished my work on Leslie's block for our Wool RR. Actually, it's a DYB "do your block", where everyone stitches one complete block that's been pieced by its owner.
Leslie requested no beads or SRE because this will go into a utility crazy quilt she's making. Stitching on wool with perle cotton or silk perle is a dream, so I had fun doing seams and adding a few motifs. I wanted to include the three friendship rings instead of a spiderweb as a traditional motif to let Leslie know I consider her a special friend. We've worked on so many things together that it seemed appropriate.
The tatted butterfly was received as a gift somewhere along the line (wish I remembered when and who, LOL). The "Breckenridge" label was a bit of serendipity. I do save clothing labels, and this one just jumped out at me since both Leslie and I planned and attended a Retreat for CQI last September in Breckenridge. The leaves are left over from my November autumn block that was published in the 2002 Quilting Arts Calendar.
Until next time,
