オンラインクラス第三週 Encrusted CQ Lesson Three : starting point

I found these embellishments from my box. Their colors looks nice to my block. They might be used as follow.

Therefore I will work motif embroidery definitely around the lace motif. I would like to connect upper and below part of this block with it somehow.

Here is the block ready to be worked on for lesson 3.

I love that piece of lace! The colors on the flowers definitely go with the block, too. It's a shame that the lace is sort of hidden with the same color behind. I like it in that spot for shape, but I wish the lace stood out more. Maybe that's what your embellishment will make happen!

Susan, you are definitely right. To tell the truth, I didn't think about that. I was thinking only the shape. Is there any way to highlight the lace? How about putting red beads on the edge of petals?

Susan said...

That might work! It's just such a lovely piece, I hate to see it fade into the background. It's so visible against the orange and then . . . not. I'll look forward to seeing what you do with beads on it.
