Chocolate Memories

Chocolate Memories W“Chocolate Memories” is another example of the blocks used in the Embellishment Sampler. Each of the nine blocks use a batik square zig zag stitched to  a piece of felt. I added a piece of lace, doily or hankie. Trims, silk ribbon and embroidery were added next. It was finished up with beads and found objects. The squares were then added to a quilted piece with beads. The entire piece measures approximately 20″ square.

Chocolate Block 5I love doing these little pieces. Block 5 features a photo on fabric of my sweet cat Myke who died a few months ago at the age of 19. A theme can be applied to the whole set or a single small square can be used on a card, a magnet or a book cover.

Chocolate Block 7All of my collections of beads, lace, threads and ribbons can be mined for the current block that I am working on. I have so many ideas for my next block that I have a hard time choosing the next one to start.

I hope you enjoy them.
