This is Helena's Blue "Garden" Block. I did the upper left corner and down the left side most of the way, the seam connecting them and on the right side of the long block, and the center block. The corner has spider web and spider with a cluster of eggs that she is guarding. Below that is a row of butterflies to hold the seam. Then the next thing is the bunch of blue flowers on the upper limb of the tree (which is out of site except for the 2 limbs).

Below that, on the other limb is a stumpwork peacock, with the tail done in sequins and beads. Below that is a metallic winged dragonfly with a bead body. The seam on this block is cretan stitch filled with sequins and beads, The sequins are clear with silver glitter in them, so they look blue and reflect mostly blue.

Finally, the center seam is done with metalic blue thread on the flowers and leaves, with the large flower centers filled with blue seed beads.

  1. As being a blue color lover this block is perfectly my kind:)))
    Your sequins looks so neat, your work is so nice, indeed.
