My September RR Crazy Quilt block done and done

I have my September RR block finished.  Like I have said this is the first time I have done a RR of this type and love it.  A challenge every month to work on another artist's block and someone you don't really know.  
 
For some reason I was at a loss what to do with Rengin's block.  She is from Turkey and this is traditional  hand dyed  fabric.  It is so soft and the colors are beautiful.  Then I thought ---OK Annette just create like it is your block and play. I think Rengin would want that.  She is going to put all 6 of the blocks in a wall hanging and we are to make them all coordinate them. 
 
 
The empty block I choose.  The remaining 4 all just had the same colors and just different configurations.     
 
 
 
 
 
Here is what I did with Rengin's block.   I hope she likes it. 
 


 
 
 
I actually got brave and dyed a little piece of trim that came from Ireland, thank you Ger.  It is part of a medallion I had cut in half.   Now the piece I put it on is really grey not the color shown here.  I then put a button styled after Depression glass in the middle of it.   The pretty ribbon is some my friend Denise sent me and it is so pretty.   Then I added bits of Australian lace my friend Betty sent me.  This is a friend contributed block let me tell you.  I love getting packages of pretties and I use them all.  Of course I always share back.  The pretty ribbon is some from Flights of Fancy, well worth the price and now on sale.  
 
I needed a main eye focal point so I used some of Nicki's beautiful dyed lace, sorry Nicki Lee what I did to your lace.   Nicki's shop is RavioLee Dreams.   I just embellished to my hearts content and this is the finished piece.  
 
 
I am still working on my Haven/Meals on wheels pouches.  More pics later.
 
There you go and thanks for stopping by and seeing what is going on in my world today.
