Janelle's Fan Block Finished

Janelle's beautiful block in the Fan RR is finished, and is about to start on its way home to New Zealand.

This has been a wonderful block, and everyone has been inspired in what they have added. But they also worked in a suitably restrained way - which is what makes this block so special.

Janelle's Finished Fan

The larger version is HERE.

My additions are the waste canvas flowers at the top, the tatting along the curved line and the three largeish flowers (two needle-weaving, one in beads) on the lower curve. I was going to put a ribbon flower on that diamond shape lower down, but the centre of beads looked perfect on its own.

Linda, this is just so beautiful! I wanted to ask you about your tatting. I know you use a shuttle. Have you ever worked with needle tatting? I only do needle tatting and cannot begin to comprehend how one works with a shuttle.

Might you be willing to explain how it works sometime?
