This is my third block for CQJP2015. I'm a wee bit behind schedule.
I found the template for this block in Foolproof Crazy Quilting by Jennifer Clouston. She has a blog if you're interested......Sew So Crazy.
Only four seams so not a lot of work and I left empty spaces.....eeeek!!! That was so hard for me because I always want to cover everything with stitching.
I covered some small plastic curtain rings with variegated thread in blue, purple and rust red. I don't know if you call it a cast on stitch, buttonhole stitch or blanket stitch...whatever...LOL It looked pretty so I added them to one of my seams and used purples and rust for the rest of my seams.
I used couching on two of my seams. I also used the detached button hole stitch to make the "flowers" on my vine.
