Jo's entire block..finished


To begin with ..this was a very large block.(14" square) so it could handle some larger elements. Rita set the tone with the fabulous large rabbit which I adored.. Cobi and Cathy had some nice circular things happening lower left so I added more circular elements at the top.
Then I couldn't believe my good luck that it came to me with the whole center unadorned. So I had great fun doing the beaded calla lily with beads that were sent to me. Using as many of the beads left as I could, I beaded the holy heck out of the tatted doily and two long beaded seams. I wrote the names of all who contributed beads on the back of the block and on her booklet...
