Embellished Vintage Image

This is a nine-inch crazy quilted block featuring a RibbonSmyth fusible vintage image.
I've embellished around the block with a Rainbow dyed rayon motif. And added RibbonRuffle loops and a hand-dyed rayon tape ribbon covered with 1/8th inch crimson velvet. The block is pieced with patches of celery, toast, and lime doupioni silk pieces. I've added  silk ribbon leaves and silk twist stitches, over the seams. The fun part ~ finish with vintage beads.

Vic this is breathtaking! Just the inspiration I needed ! Here in Ct the first little purple and yellow flowers are in bloom so I'm sure they are in Pa too-finally spring! Thanks so much for the birthday wishes on Facebook :)

Terri, thank you! I guess you are getting ready for another storm?!
We have snow coming in shortly. And it just has to be the last winter snow! I'm so ready to see tulips!
