Crazy Block for Katy

I am in a round robin with the Crazy Quilting International Group. My round robin group is called the Fab15 or FFT #15 (Fabulous First Timers). One must complete the first timers before they can move on to other round robins. The reason for this is to see if one can follow all the instructions and mail their block out on time!!!  I am the first one to work on Katy's block.  I decided to do the diamond and made her a silk ribbon bouquet and a humming bird.  The silk ribbon is my own hand dyed. The diamond was outlined with beads. The pink fan is outlined with a chain stitch and inside are straight stitches and lazy daisy stitches. For the last seam treatment I added a bit of tatting using Lizbeth 20 Vineyard Harvest and the pattern Hens and Chicks.    This is the pattern I usually empty my shuttles with.
