Cream on Cream RR: Meg's Block

Today I got Meg's block and right away the block just spoke to me and ideas flowed! I didn't stop working on it until I finished...several hours later here is the block...talk about addicted! Anyway the block needed some texture so I dug through all my pretty lace appliques and added them. Cobi and Debbie S. had added such beauty to the block that it made my part easy and things really flowed well. For example there is a Rose and Butterfly theme that has evolved with the block.
Now it will be sent on to the last lady to work on it before it goes home to Meg!

I added the vintage wedding dress lace rose and the MOP butterfly with flight path!
I also added the half crochet doily with 4mm silk ribbon sweetheart roses and ribbon stitch leaves. Also I added the crochet doily that was hand-dyed by Pam Kellogg...just perfect there! I added 7mm sweetheart roses and some 4mm ribbon stitches and then added some white straight stitches coming out the edge!
I also added this cute butterfly with some vintage wedding dress pearls.
