Last, but not least in the project is my Madame Butterfly block! I'm not as good as I would like in the pre-planning phase of block creation so the use of braids and lace and such are an oddity for me. However, I thought the lace soften the overall look on this block and I finally found a trim the blended with the silk print enough to let it shine. I again added some stitch variations to the seams and some dimensional embroidery. The beads are huge by my standards, but...that soon will be corrected as well!

this block is beautifully light and almost glows ( no its not the wine lol!)Just love the centre fabric to bits..soft and gentle.

I would be interested to know how the butterfly badge/brooch was carried out...very intersting ( dont I just have to learn it all???)

The buterfly is just a bit of lace that I hand dyed and then added some beads to the wings! Verrrrryyy easy! :_)
