You will see this is the block I put together some time back. I must say again, Thanks Melissa for putting up such a good tutorial. Make sure you check her out at Honey Bee's Bliss.
Here is he tutorial:
I decided to make this more of a oriental square. For the flower tree on the bottom and the Pagoda I used the tissue paper instead of marking on the cloth and I must say I enjoyed that and I will be doing it a lot more.
I wove the basket on the top with the orange flowers. The old crochet yellow rose was from stuff I found when we moved mom and dad to Florida. Zoe helped me sew that on. She stayed with me and I would aim the needle and bring it up where it needed to go and she puled it the rest of the way. Than I would stick it down and turn it over and she would pull it again. For a 3 year old she sure stayed with it. She told her mom she made the whole block.
I have the seams to do and a bit more on the blocks. This will be for a album again. I am going to try to sell it, I sure don't know what a fair price would be. Any ideas?
I thought I would share a few blogs today that I love.
