Fan Block for Barbara


I'm the last to stitch on Barbara's set of blocks...and my block chosen is her peach/orange fan. Here, I've begun by adding some lace trims...
 
Next, some silk ribbon. You know I love roses and how they look on fans...so went with three different types of neutral/medium tones for a romantic look.
 
Ended with more embroidery and lots of beads.
Ready to mail when Barbara returns home in a couple of weeks.

Beautiful block Kathy...I love the rose theme you decided on, it makes the block look and feel Victorian.

such a pretty block, the ribbon works is my favourite bit, shame I cannot seem to conquer it myself
