Colleen's Gypsy Block

 
The latest crazy quilt block I've been working on belongs to Colleen, and she titled it "Gypsy". It gave me a great canvas to add some crochet roses that I'd been saving for just the right project. I was gifted with about six of these...but only needed two for this block.
 
To begin, I added three trims to the lower seam areas...then added some tatting pieces, and some stitching and beads.
 
This was a lot of fun to work on because it was so bright and very open to using different types of supplies.
 
Here is the block as it is now, ready for the next stitcher.

Beautiful work as always Kathy. Love the way you added the leaves with the verigated perle threads.

Those roses are lovely, and so are the tatting pieces.
