Roses, roses, roses - Rita

 My work on Rita's block in the Roses, Roses, Roses crazy quilt round robin over on Crazy Quilter's International is complete. Let me show you some of the motifs I added. First was a crochet basket filled with flowers and a tiny bow stitched to the top.

Next was two pieces of gorgeous dyed lace I got from Cathy K's Etsy shop...lovely! It was a shame to cover some of it...but, in keeping with the rose theme...I placed a wire ribbon that was made by gathering up some ribbon after rolling the center. The leaves are velvet on the bottom with hand painted dyed lace above.

The smaller piece of lace got a little button cluster. Rita didn't want any large clusters...but I think this little one is just fine.

Lastly, for motifs...I added two iron-on butterfly motifs...

but, I sewed them in place...and did not iron them.

Tomorrow...I'll show you my seams...and the final block before it is mailed to the next person in our group.
