Anything Goes DYB rr. Rita's blocks

Ritas blocks are so wonderful. Lots of color and design. She used mostly kimono fabrics. After I hemmed and hawed for several days, I decided to take the red one. I got sort of carried away with sequin waste and beads, but boy did I have fun!

Lori's Pink Color Study block

I wasn't too sure about pink- never thought much about it one way or the other. After working on Lori's block, it's beginning to grow on me. I guess there's no color I really dislike.
Lori had already done some work on the block before she sent it out. I had always admired the boullion roses that others have done so I tried my hand at those. They are in the lower right corner.
There are also 3 little flowers made of sequin waste in that corner. I also did the serpentine seam to the left of the roses.
I added the tatted butterfly and the beaded seam to the right of "him". Last, but not least, I did the horizontal seam on the light pink patch in the lower left corner. I had a lot of fun working on this block.
