Cathy's art nouveau block almost done

I need to run some beads along the cording on the pleated braid bottom right and finish a dragonfly button but then it will be done.... The voluminous folds on her dress suggested an iris to me before the block even got here... I did the scalloped seam treatment to echo the yoke on her dress...
Morris kinda chewed the leaf part of the motif out of shape but Cathy will forgive him I know.... I was aiming for a rich opulent look...

OMG, this is so beautiful. Opulent, dramatic, classy. I LOVE IT!! And I love that Morris wanted to add his contribution, too, LOL. I'll always treasure this block!! Hugs, Cathy

This is stunning Gerry, just stunning

It does look opulent Gerry. Makes me want to wear my beaded flapper dress, get out my diamond-studded cigar holder, and recline on a divan.

I also really like the black ribbon that runs on an angle across the bottom...not sure why but it adds a lot I think.
