Moulin Rouge Block


























My little trollop is a
slightly tarnished dove..

Searching everywhere
for her own true love."

I found this image on a card in a mini-market in Ninilchik, Alaska and it just spoke Moulin Rouge and Paris to me. Perfect for the victorian era of CQ. Cobi Witteloek, Ati Ham Sas, Leslie Ehrlich, and Maire Courtney were in this "encrusted RR" and they are all fantastic seamtresses. I think Cobi had to work on it in a closet to escape comments from her friends about the "naughty" block. The buttons on this block were moved twice and I moved them again when they got home. I filled it in a lot more to finish it off with more hearts and fans and it will always be one of my favorite pieces.

Now I see the block again I see how beautiful it became. All the details are in balance. I am happy that you like it very much :-)
