Judyth's spring block





I am participating in a block swap in the CQforNewbies group. The title is spring and my swap partner is Judyth. She made a lovely challenging garden with a pathway and a big tree. I had no idea what Judyth had in mind but I tried to create a flowery spring garden with all sorts of spring flowers.

I did not use SRE for I think that Judyth does not like it. So I stitched and used some beads. On the block you can find alliums, tulips, crocus, anemones, muscaris, forget-me-nots, awakening ferns, bergenias... a kind of a picket fence...

In the upper left corner you can see alliums and pink tulips.

In the lower left corner there is a big container with pink roses and daisies. The container is made out of a print appliquée.

Under the tree there are ferns & anemones, along the pathway bergenias and muscaris.

Well, I got a bit carried away and it was hard to stop LOL. But I succeeded to stop at this point - and there is still something for Judyth to add: more rocks on the pathway, branches & leaves and possible flowers to the tree and maybe a bird bath on the empty patch...

It was very fun stitching this block, my 1st ever swap block. Good to have this to do for I have spent nearly a month without CQuing!

I'm so happy and very pleased with what you have added to my block. Your work is truely exquisit. Probably misspelled that last word. You are one very talented and gifted lady. I'm very impressed!!! Thank you! You have certainly done justice to what I was "seeing". Your flowers look so real.
I love it. Thank you again. You'll hear more when I have it in my hands and can really ohhhh and ahhhh over it.
You could have done a little bit of sre. But, it looks perfect without it.
