CQJP2012 - 2nd Block for June

This is my second block for June.  
Lots of gold in it, I think I was influenced 
by all the lovely "Fool's Gold" dyb blocks 
making their rounds right now.

These are cast on stitches with a small pearl bead tucked in.

And this is the sketch in Miss Carole Samples book "Crazy  Quilt Stitches" that I used as inspiration.  (I have permission to use the sketches.)

Lazy daisy and beaded flowers..........

..... from this sketch in the book. 

Another row, but I wandered a bit from the original, below.

This is the centre part of the bottom section.  There's quite a lot of space to fill in on the bottom part of these blocks.  The lace motif was cut from a tablecloth and embellished.  The golden swirls were from a image search on Google: "swirly patterns free".  Hundreds turn up!

This is the top corner and a button cluster.  Some of the buttons are stacked, an idea from a friend.

CQJP2012 is a challenge for participants to complete one block a month for a year and make something at the end of it.  We each submit photographs of our blocks to the CQJP2012 blog.  You can check out all the amazing selection of finished blocks, here is the link: CQJP

Must say "love it love it love it." I could go on, but that would be silly. Your work is beautiful.
