Autumn RR, Debbie's block

I recently finished up another block for the Autumn round robin. This was Debbie S. block. She had really lovely muted colors in her block and it was a joy to work on.

The first thing I did was embroider one of the motifs I learned from Sharon B's class in Silk Ribbon Embroidery. I thought this basket of flowers would be perfect for this block. I changed the ribbon to look more fallish.

I also added the rust-colored braid along one seam, and the hand-dyed leaf trim.

Lastly, I did some acorns in stumpwork and had them falling down 1 section.

This was the whole block after I had finished.
