Luscious Lace DYOB - Lisa's Blocks

I love working with very girl colours, especially pinks and purples.  Lisa's blocks were pink, and so I really enjoyed working on this set of blocks.  I chose block 3, which had pink and white strips in the centre.  I had picked up somewhere these little butterfly beads and thought they would work extremely well, and they did.  I also had some white lace that I dyed along with the fan.
This photo shows the full block, with all the elements added.

Close up of the gather silk ribbon flowers with beaded centers, and a double Cretan seam below.

This photo shows the heart bead seam on the left, continuing around clockwise is a half buttonhole wheel, and the lace I dyed.  The centre seam of chevron and detached chain flowers with beads and one of the beaded butterfly.  I'm sorry it they look orange, but they really are baby pink colours.

Gorgeous work! I've just started CQing after years as a "sane" quilter (though that's debatable). I'm in awe of your work.
