In my CQForNewbies group, we had a Round Robin of Your Favorite Song. I chose Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds just for all the great imagery and also because I had this piece of Laurel Birch fabric I wanted to use. Sadly, in the middle of this Round Robin, Ms. Birch passed away. It's a great loss to all of us.
First, here's the whole block:
Picture yourself in a boat on a river -- everyone smiles as you drift past the
flowers that grow so incredibly high
(worked by Lauri)
-- with tangerine trees and marmalade skies. . . . (Lori -- great seam treatment
for marmalade skies)
Somebody calls you, you answer quite slowly, a girl with kaleidoscope eyes . . . .
Cellophane flowers of yellow and green towering over your head
(Lucy and flowers worked by Flora)
Follow her down to a bridge by a fountain, where rocking horse people
eat marshmallow pies. . . . (Jaki -- the marshmallow pie has to be my favorite!)
Picture yourself on a train in a station. . . . (tracks by Linda)
My thanks to Fora, Lori, Lauri, Judi, Jaki, Rebecca and Linda. There is lots of other seam work and motifs done (particularly a fountain) but many were done in metallic threads, bead work, etc. that I could not get a clear picture of.
In particular, look at the little rocking horse. Those are sequins sewn on with several stitches making a little star pattern and/or like little shisha mirrors. Love it!!
Again, thank you all -- this is a great block!
