Carnival Block Complete
Wendy's Carnival Block is finished at last. It has been a slow journey to completion. The bright colors and carnival theme were really difficult for me and I had a hard time getting motivated to work on it. Taking a break from it to work on the Woven piece gave me strength to finish it. The peacock feathers on the mask gave me some direction. The carnival theme turned out to be a good excuse to use lots of sequins in the seam treatments and also to use lots of iridescent beads, which unfortunately don't photograph well.
This block is not as heavily encrusted as it could be, but it balances with Gerry's and Ritva's work. I hope that Wendy is happy with it!
The next round robin block to work on is for Rita, who choose a pastel colored Spring theme. It should be much easier (and quicker!) to work on.
