Friendship Inspired Block for TattingChic

What started as an idea to exchange lovingly created items became this friendship inspired block for TattingChic! When I saw the center print in my stash I just knew I had to do a block for her using it! I know she loves angels and as a child thought of tatting as the lace of angels. The tatting you see is a vintage hankie I had gotten and I thought a piece of it would be fitting. The size is 6inch but it has a 7inch outer basting line for a little leeway.
I hope you love it my friend!
