Kimono Block and Day 48....
Day 48...I have missed a few days, and as I have not been doing anything much in the way of CQ, I thought I would share this amazing Kimono block with you..
I best start with the background of this block and how it came about..
It started in December 2004, the "Crazy Gathering" online group that I belong to....
were having a beading RR..So I joined in and made a fan block, all in beautiful silk fabrics...Beautiful it was!
Much to my disappointment it never made it to it's first destination...It got lost in the mail.
I was so upset and disappointed that I was going to drop out of this RR...Then dear Stephanie offered me this gorgeous Kimono block that she had made..How could I refuse!...It was so generous of her to do that for me.
Stephanie even made me a little booklet and sent the block and booklet to the girl I was to post to...So I was back in the RR....
I thought that over the next few days I would highlight the seam treatments of this block, and give credit to the girl who did them.
I thought it was only fitting that I start with Stephanie's work on his block.
Stephanie did this MOP sequin flower motif with tiny pink and blue pearls is on the centre back of the kimono.
Thank you Stephanie...
