CQ block with rayon ribbon flowers

This is an eight inch block embellished with hand-dyed rayon ribbons. There is a wire-edge ribbon rose in the center of the block. A small 1/2" round RibbonSmyth button cover  is covered in doupioni silk. I gathered 10" of hand-dyed rayon tape in the Merlot colorway and then tacked the gathered ribbon around the button cover. I added beads around the button cover.  A dyed  rayon motif using Rainbow Dyes in Victorian Rose, Olivine and Antique Gold is then tacked to the fabric.

Thank you! This is a small 6" square block that I found while cleaning one of the rooms in the studio. Think I should make more little blocks, since they are quick to embellish and piece!
