CQJP February block Work-in-Progress

This block adds in some blue fabrics with the apricots. Layered on top of the silks, brocades and velvets, are lace scraps with ragged edges which adds to the flow of the negative space. Gold metallic Scalamandre gimp is couched over the lace bits. A couple of hand-dyed rayon venise lace motifs are tacked into place. Finished the stitching session with rolled RibbonSmyth Rainbow-dyed silk satin roses.
