I'm really pleased to have been able to complete this embroidery block for the Girls Own Stitching Club project 'Le Jardin Quilt' designed by Bronwyn Hayes of Red Brolly Designs. It is the last block that Bronwyn is going to publish for this year and I wanted to finish up 2013 with all my blocks up-to-date.
It is such a pretty little scene called 'The Bird Bath'. The new technique that Bronwyn introduced in this block was the bullion rose. It took a little bit of practice getting the roses right but, I am very happy with the results. It is always fun to learn a new technique. Should you want to make the quilt yourself, click on the tab at the top of the page marked 'GOSC: 2013' and all the links back to Bronwyn's posts for each of the blocks are there.
The fabrics I have been using to surround the embroidery and complete the blocks are all 'Tilda' fabrics. It will be nice to see the quilt complete but, that will have to wait a little while.
