now you see this little dragonfly?
not a big motif right?
I want to show you how she changed the whole look of this block but I'll get to that later
here's where designing gets fun or frustrating depending on which side of the dime your on.
to counterbalance this big crochet flower I had to do a little fiddling which turned into a lot of fiddling
the white ferns are one part then came more fern and green SRE roses and white trim.
I knew I wanted fans on this block so here is the beaded one
and here is the embroidered one, with more ferns, in green this time
and a nice bit of button floozy going on there as a seam treatment
and here's the fun part, I told you I'd get to it!
this block looks ok
but there's this big empty spot my eye keeps catching on up at the top
and with the block being so busy everywhere else
it draws your eye to it and doesn't let it go
and this is where the dragonfly comes in to save the day
as you can see it's not a big motif
but it's just enough of a bridge to keep your eye moving around the block and not just stopping
I might even put something small and brown, in that bit of blazing white, under the beaded fan as it's beginning to bother me now........
