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.

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.
