Crazy Quilt Block 4

Crazy Quilt Block 4

Block four was completed and added to the  first row of the Crazy Quilt. I have two more rows to work on so it will be a small quilt when finished.
The butterfly was part of the gift package from Maureen Greeson at the online CQ Quilt Show. I attached it with beads. 
Velvet Small ButterfliesThe butterfly is shaped from silk velvet and custom made for Maureen's shop at www.maureensvintageacquisitions.com. They are made by M & S Schmalbug Inc in NYC.

Three pieces of tatting are added to the quilt. The fan has lots of beads sewen on, My favorite hummingbird by Karey Solomon  and the bottom tatting are rings and chains with a small heart in the center. To fill in the space I have couched down some thick, variegated thread. Also pictured is the cross stitched rose done with waste canvas, silk ribbon bees and a worm!

It feels good to finish another block, sit back with a glass of wine and enjoy the  New Mexico sunset!
