2010 Tat Days Quilt Block

Not very long ago, I volunteered to finish a quilt block for the 2010 Tat Days put on by Palmetto Tatters Guild. Here's a photo of the quilt block I received:

Well, I looked and looked at the block trying to decide what sort of crazy quilting/tatting I would add. I tatted up some edgings and tried them out; some I kept; some I did not. I tried a number of different single motifs to fill the 'center' area but finally ended up tatting a rose motif for it. I added some butterflies with beads; more tatted edgings; and even a little lace with buttons, and this is what it looked like when I sent back to Georgia.

If you double-click on the photo itself you'll be able to see much more detail.

It was fun to work on and inspired me to practice some embroidery stitches for future projects. I'm looking forward to seeing the finished quilt and I can tell from the other blocks I've already seen, that it will be a huge success!
