Pansy Block for Kerry

Detail Ribbon Pansy, originally uploaded by ivoryblushroses.

Flowers in the pansy/viola/violet family rank in my top 3 favorite flowers, so I was delighted when a pansy round robin began at CQI! The first blocks I received were from Kerry, who chose fabrics mostly in shades of purple and yellow. The first element I created for these blocks was the large ribbon pansy using ombre wired ribbon. I also found the lovely little purple and yellow pansy button at the fabric store and knew it would be a perfect addition to this block.

Detail of Pansy Block
One patch on each of Kerry's blocks contains butterflies. I added a bit of split stitch to outline it and continue the shape onto the adjacent patches. I love the little tri-color violas so added a cluster of silk ribbon embroidery violas in the upper left corner.
