So when I was invited to be a part of her KINDNESS QUILT PROJECT, I was thrilled and honored to participate. An immediate "YES' was my answer.
4 squares - crochet and embellished.
Roughly 6 inches square.
These will be gathered by Vicki, assembled, and gifted to a special person.
What a wonderful way to share our love of creating with others.
I immediately went to work.
Details from Square #2
The base is crocheted from a soft, baby sweater yarn that I had leftover from a baby blanket.
(I've also used it in a Moogly Sweater that I made)
It matched some sweet rose fabric scrap that I had. I actually think that this is the very last bit of this fabric.
I took some beautiful coordinating Perle Cotton and crocheted an edging around the oval rose cutout from that fabric. Giving it a "frame" effect.
A tiny PEACE advertising token from an insurance company was attached along with a vintage button and a blossom from a silk hydrangea.
I then beaded a tiny little butterfly (or moth) and attached that as well.
I mounted the framed rose a bit off center to allow the colorful striping to be seen .
A fairly quick and simple square.
