Here is the block that I embellished. Cindy did a great job piecing it and with the color selection. She limited us to using solid threads, no variegated and no beads or silk ribbon embroidery. I used Finca 16 and size 12 DMC and size 12 Anchor pearl cottons. I really enjoyed doing this and it has inspired me.
Here are some closer views of the stitches I used. I really enjoy doing layered stitches. I like the way she pieced the fan and I may use that in something someday. She requested that we do the corner stitches to simulate the corner of the fan.
