Patricia: WIP-Mother Wallhanging

The l will show what I have done. Last couple week
s have been very hectic.  I think I have one picture that I may be able to get up from my laptop, the others are still locked up in the big PC.
 
Hopefully we will get our computer problems solve.

Pretty! I really like what you did on the ribbon and the frame around your mom's photo.

Pat, that is such a pretty block. You have beautiful trims on there, and some great stitching. I very much like the effect of that green scallop and your yellow buttonhole curves as well as the pretty unique stitching closest to the yellow flowers on the left. Just lovely all around.

Your block turned out very pretty. I am sure your Mom would be delighted with it!

This block is just beautiful. What a lovely tribute to your Mom.

This is lovely, Pat. Everything has a soft sheen that is attractive, and your stitching is very nice. The eye, though, is led back to the focal point-- the photo of your Mom.

I will add my 2 cents worth of praise. I particularly like that lavender ribbon trim and the stitching on the left, under the yellow flowers. Your mom's picture really stands out, too. Very nice,lovely block.

Thank You all very much for your comments. I've been thinking I will buy some satin and make plain borders for frame. At first I was going to make several blocks. But have decided to just go with a single block for my Mom keep it soft an lovely as she was a very "loving & caring" person.

I have a hallway which is our "gallery" so will hang it there when the border is finished.


Now to make my April block.

Love all the flowers on the block, from the yellow daisy-like flowers on the left, and the peach ruched ribbon flowers on the right, and the shiny jacquard flowers in the fabrics all over, and especially the beautiful flower (your mother) in the middle of the metallic butterfly trim.
Well done Pat, this is gorgeous.
