Mid month Show & Tell - Peony block

We have some fabulous blocks to share this month.
Once again, the personality, stitch work and creative interpretations are wonderful!

Gail decided to fussy cut her flowers using a technique called Broderie Perse. Her block finishes at 8.5" and if you look closely you can see the tiny ant she embroidered onto one of the stems.

Dianne Miller was gracious to share with us how she applique'd her Peony block. Dianne stitched her stems & leaves from one single piece of fabric. She cut away and turned her fabric under as she worked her way around the block.

Pamela and Patti made their blocks using hand dyed and batik fabrics...

Below are a few more small 8.5" blocks.
Krista's in wool and Dawn and Susie's in cotton reproduction prints.

Pat's block in batiks with a modern Kaffe fabric for the vase

Marcia's block created with modern "Tula Pink" fabrics

If you are currently working on your Peony block (or any other botanical block we've already posted) please send us a picture when it's finished. We'd love to share more of your work in our End of Month post!

On behalf of The Virginia Quilt Museum, Neva Hart, Dawn Cook Ronningen and myself - we would like to wish all of you a very Happy Holiday Season !

Happy Stitching!
Doreen & Dawn
