The other day I posted on the Face Book page for CQJP that I needed some help trying to come up with something to bring my block all together. Received some great ideas but the minute I read Maureen's suggestion for a cornucopia I knew what I needed to do. I had bought 2 of these adorable little cornucopia motifs a while back from a lady in Belgium and never really thought about using them. I had already dyed both pieces of lace so I was amazed that one of them fit perfectly in the center of my bock. I decided to stitch it down and embellish it up so as to make it look like it was pouring out flowers.
