Midnight Fantasy -- Lorrie


I've had Lorrie's block at my house for over a month. It is a bit larger than normal, but I like large blocks...so I'm okay with that. She asked for several things...and the hardest was to use some provided fabric to create 3-D butterflies out of. Since I was the last in the robin...and the other ladies smartly opted out of this request...it was up to me to give it a try.
 Lorrie, I did my best...but feel free to redo every one of them if you like. It was not my "cup of tea"; even so, they do seem to be happy on the block.
 I added a couple of seams...a featherstitch to echo the same style that Cathy L. put down...
 and my favorite fan stitch.
Mostly, I added several florals in hand dyed lace to bring tons of texture and color to the block.
Then, butterflies by the bucketful...and crystals/beads for some magic.
 Last was a tiny spider and her web...
