Autumn RR, Ritva's block

This past week, I have worked on Ritva's autumn block. I found I had a leaf lace in my stash, and I dyed it, and attached it and used a darker thread to accentuate the veins.

Ritva had a number of really nice fall-like batiks.
The leaves about the leaf lace I accentuated a bit with some darker thread also.

I also did the brown/gold seam in a feather stitch-double chain stitch combo, and I also made the sunflower. For the sunflower I also accented the leaf batik underneath and tried to make it look like it was part of the sunflower.

This is the whole block so far. I was the first person to work on it.

Is this a lovely block or what? So much for JBM's 'rule' not to use any print next to another!
I love what you have done Karrin!
