Leona's Block

Hello All
Here is the work I have done on Leona's Wizard of OZ block. I must say it was a challenge as I am not a fan of the movie or of Judy Garland. But I guess that is part of the point of a Round Robin isn't it? To challenge yourself and do something you normally wouldn't do.
I am doing another RR soon in which you pick your own project and theme based on a focus fabric. You do a whole block based on your fabric and theme, then send the focus fabric and your finished block on to the others so they can carry on with your theme. I have a feeling most of the others in this RR will be saying " What the Heck was Lauri thinking?"
All in all I am happy with the work I did. The Wicked Witch is a silk that I printed out. The broomstick treatment was fun. I had a bit of a time getting the tornado figured out. Wanted to add a cow charm to it but I couldn't find one. So if anyone who works on the block after me has one feel free to add it. Then I embellished the heck out of the print on the fabric, adding the barn ,the house and the corn. I have to say, I've been to Kansas and yes they have hills but not quite like those. Looks like NW Missouri to me
I hope Leona likes it
Off to work on Faith's ( I think) Peter Rabbit block. It is getting pretty full so I will really have to do some thinking on it

Wow, that's great! I love the silk, and all the wonderful stitching you did. I never think of the movie or Judy Garland. I think of Frank Baum's books. My son and I read the first dozen of them when he was about 5. He loved them.

That torando is to die for (no pun intended). I love it Lauri -- GREAT JOB!

Your work is fabulous! I just found your blog and ended up scrolling back through the whole thing. I love your style and all the fantasy things you've made.
