CQJP2012 July's blocks

Here's my first block for July.  I used mostly  Caron Watercolours variegated thread for the fan part of the block.
Visit the CQJP2012 blog to feast your eyes.  

My swirls are improving.  These were drawn freehand with my disappearing pen.

I had a bit of fun with the various flowers.

This is my second block for July.
The embroidery here is all in a gold and silky thread.

Gorgeous. I really like how the stitching echoes the fabric patterns.

Hi Diane, I just popped over from the CQJP blog. Your fan blocks are all so beautiful! You do a lovely job with your embroidery.
