Pink Madonna--Round 2

I was able to add my part to the Pink Madonna this week. As luck would have it, I had some pieced blocks and embroidery that I had already done. They worked marvelously for what I was trying to show. In my mind, Our Lady of Guadalupe is a folk art madonna; resplendid in her patchwork clothes so I wanted to further emphasis the bright colors Barbara started with in my round. There will be much hand embroidery and embellishments added so I tried to be sensitive to that when embroidering the ribbon. I have really started to enjoy the word ribbons and feel like this is one piece where I could use them effectively.

So, now it is into the mail to Barbara so she can add her part, the final borders. Then, the handwork begins!

I love the composition of elements . . . and can't wait to see where Barbara takes this piece.

The words are great for the project - they add a lot. I also love your square-in-square blocks. I always do; they have so much personality.
