I thought you might like to know how I'm getting on with block two of Leanne Beasley's beautiful four block quilt 'Mrs Beasley's Sampler Quilt'. Block one was great fun to work on and is a really pretty quilt block. Here's a reminder of how it looks.
Instructions for block two are given in the latest issue of Vignette magazine (issue 11) and as I had all the pieces cut and ready to go, I couldn't wait to get started on it!
Once all the applique pieces were fused into place, I transferred across the embroidery outlines using my new light box and a pencil.
I then finished off all the applique shapes using a small machine stitched zig-zag except for the dresden plate where, I used a running stitch.
Now I have lots of embroidery to stitch and I can't wait!! I'll keep you up to date with my progress.
It is looking gorgeous! I love the combination of patchwork, applique and embroidery....so decorative and pretty!ReplyDelete
