Pam’s BAS RR Blocks

Finally, I got inspired to crazy quilt again, and I finished the last set of blocks in this round robin. I do hope Pam will like them.

This is the Anything Goes Block where I added the Bullion bumblebee, and a button Trail with bullion flower, pearls, shell buttons, and various sizes and shapes clear and crystal beads

The buttonhole block has up and down buttonhole stitched with 2 strands of Splendor 100% silk # S1044 – my new favorite embroidery thread, and a buttonhole cat outline sewn with 2 strands DMC cotton:

Last but not least, the Straight stitch block has an applique heart with a beaded and sequined fan shape in the right corner, and chain stitch curves on the left side with detached chain stitch, and French knots. The ribbon is back stitch, and so is the bottom design, with some more French knots. Couched a metallic cord around the applique. Kathy S had some heart designs on her blog, and she kindly shared with all of us. I made the fan out of beads instead of embroidery.
