Heritage CQ - France

coffee anyone?
this whole thing is going to be a big wall hanging about 38"square

naked block
it's the biggest cq I have ever attempted and has been a challenge not only in scale but in research and patience.

there are 9 blocks total each of a different part of my heritage + a boarder and binding (not yet gotten to)

Eiffel tower of course!

lovers al fresco
all in all it has taken up 2 years of stitching and planning.

there has to be a frog!
I have tried to make it cohesive by using the same fabric, lace, floss, colors and beads I think Its good so far,

but I will have to finish putting it together to determine how well I did.

for now it's 1 block at a time! and this block is France

Absolutely gorgeous, Flora. I think my favorite part is either the mandala in the upper left, or the way you decorated the center silkie with mirror-image flowers and stitching. Or it might be the seamwork, or the Eiffel tower, or…. everything is just delightful!
Hugs, Cathy K

Just WOW! I like your theme and project. A legacy of sorts. What is the significance of France? Parents or Grandparents born there? Inquiring minds.
