Maroon13 Crazy Quilt Wall-hanging Block One

Block One is almost completely embellished! The focus is a beautiful couture piece of  brown  beaded embroidery. When I was teaching in La Bourboule, there was a lady selling beaded embroidery pieces at the Casino, where our classes were held. She had acquired the embroidery pieces from a Paris couture house. And many Euros later, I came home with a small bag of assorted sequin-encrusted pieces in a variety of colors.  Each block will incorporate Krienik metallic threads. I added some vintage lime green sequins to the seams.  My embroidery is far from perfect! My only focus, is to finish with something "pleasing to the eye" that gave joy  while creating.
