Breast Cancer Block finished


I am sending off my Breast Cancer raffle block - I had dearly wanted to get a stumpwork dragonfly done to sit on the top of the heart, just above the rose, but haven't had a chance.

You can look at the process in the Flickr Set (click on each to enlarge).

It is off to the USA now, to go in a quilt that is raffled to raise funds for Breast Cancer research, but also to help raise funds to help crazyquilters travel to the major retreat over there. I'm not sure how many there are from Australia - which is why there is the threepence on there with teh Australian Coat of Arms.

And, for those who haven't followed the process - the black on the heart is a modified form of Chicken Scratch, with the crosses first worked on waste canvas.
