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.
