Here is the January block completed along with some close-ups of details.
This style is from the mid 1910's around the time WWI began.
The styles had become more practical and less frilly by about 1915 although still heavily embellished with embroidery. Colors as well had become darker. The skirt length became shorter and lace up or button up boots were fashionable.
Spider webs are a symbol of good luck on crazy quilts so I like to use them when I can.
Hats were still a fashion necessity and even though the rims became narrower feathers were still popular as decoration and used on the majority of women's hats.
I like to use dragonflies and/or butterflies on my blocks.
The zipper was invented near the end of this decade but not yet used in women's clothing, buttons were used so I wanted to add some vintage buttons on this block.
Now to do a little more research for my February block.
