Crazy Quilt Round Robin

We have started the Cats and Dogs round robin on the Crazy Quilting International Yahoo group. Here is Kristie's block. Something was needed above the horse so a spray of silk ribbon roses and leaves  highlights that area. The horse and lady are outlined with  tatting down the front of her blouse. Wheat Ear Stitch was added to the right seam with a bead in the center and Lazy Daisy Bows with beads separate the lady and back stitched dogie. I used a Fly Stitch down the seam near the dogie and Cretan Stitch on the other side. Using combination stitches of Lazy Daisy for stems and french knots for the grapes helps fill the area. On the top of the Cretan Stitch are Lazy Daisy with beads and below are sequins with beads in center. A Zig Zag Chain Stitch completes the bottom of the block. Kristie's left side material was really bold so I outlined the stems with bugle beads and Lazy Daisy silk ribbon for the flowers. A Cross Stitch was used to fill in the spaces.

I love all the details on this block! The grapes really set off that one seam treatment beautifully - love it! Also loved the tatting on the lady's blouse. Great block Linda!
