A little more progress with block two...

This last week I have had a little time to continue stitching the embroidery on block two of my 'Mrs Beasley's Sampler Quilt'.  The second block of this beautiful quilt designed by Leanne Beasley is really starting to come to life as the embroidery stitches are added.



I have managed to get all the flower stems and leaves sewn. The next step is to add the lettering and finish off the little embroidered details.  Not too long before it will be finished!!



If you look very closely, you can see the faint pencilled outline of the letters in the photograph above and a spray of flowers in the photograph below.

    1. Thank you for your sweet comment Joy! I am looking forward to finishing this quilt too. I love it when they are only published a little at a time (as this one is) and it finally comes together in the finished quilt. Have a lovely weekend! :) xx
