Call these stitches Hope

Margreet De Reus of the Netherlands finished her first block for the 2022 project in early March. It will become the centre of a wallhanging with the name HOPE.

Why Hope? She explains the name came to her as she was working on this 9-inch square block.

“I listened and looked at the terrible news each day and decided this would be HOPE.”

The colours are black, gold, pale grey and dark grey and the butterfly fabric, of course.”

“The laces I used are rather old, the black beads and some items are real new and some antique.

The other 12 blocks will be 4½/4½ inches, she said. Remember, she shared a plan in this blog post. At the time, though, she had not decided on a name for her wall hanging. (She always names her wall hangings).

Remember, this is how the block looked before her stitching and embellishing:
