Tone on Tone Round Robin.

This is the second gorgeous block in this RR which I have worked on. This block is of vibrant pinks and reds, and the owner has requested that we include some Chinese influenced ideas.

I decided to add a "Lantern Festival" to one of the patches, after googling Google "images" for Chinese lanterns. I visolfexed some lantern shapes onto the patch, then outlines the designs with the gold metallic butterfly thread (couched). I added fairy lights in the feather stitch/bullion flower seam above.

I hope Viv and Debbie like it.
