CQJP February

catching up on the Cqjp, at least bare with me while i try

I thought id give you a quick overview of the blocks first then get into details

so first layer is the nekked block

then your first layer of stitches, since I'm also using my blocks for the BJP and joyful embellishments each block is going to have a stitch theme.

he theme here is herringbone stitch for the base

Herringbone is a very versatile stitch that you can do all sorts of fun stuff with

here I finished it with beads and lazy daisies

then sequins and faux seed pearls

the butterfly is for the BJP and is fully beaded on felt to give it a bit more dimention

the motif here is stem stitch, leaf and flower beads

I finished this one with larger beads and lazy daisy

here the herringbone is large and small inverted with beads and lazy daisy

there are 2 other herringbone I left unfinished more for effect
