Fairy Tale Blocks Home.

A week or so ago I received the 6 blocks I sent around with a Fairy Tale theme. I chose centerpiece motifs of pictures in vintage children's books. Here are the results:

First is from Misty in Pennsylvania who chose the Frog Prince. I love the big flower and how she embroidered over the pattern in the brown fabric to make it showier.

Next, Rita in Kansas chose Little Red Riding Hood. She commented that her maiden name was Wolf, so this block called to her. I enjoy using pieces of broken jewelry on blocks, her owl is an example of how this can really add glamour to a block.

 Beryl in New York chose Jack and the Beanstalk, she added a terrific vine effect to echo the theme.

Carol of Kansas chose Rumpelstilskin and took advantage of his love of gold.

Last, but not least Cathy in Iowa settled on the Princess and the Pea. She did not disappoint with her addition of the spectacular embroidered pea pod.

Puss n Boots, came back for me to finish.

 I liked these blocks so well, that I have found a few more silkies and plan to make a few more. Here is Beauty and the Beast. I also have a Cinderella I haven't pieced into a block yet.  I'll keep you posted.
