Mrs Beasley's Sampler Quilt: Block 3 Finished!

This morning I am very excited to show you my finished block 3 of 'Mrs Beasley's Sampler Quilt'.  This beautiful quilt is designed by Leanne Beasley of Leanne's House and is being published in her wonderful magazine 'Vignette' from issue 10 (block one) to issue 13 (block four).



Block three appears in issue 12 of Vignette and I have really enjoyed piecing and then embroidering the block.



It has involved lots of different techniques including patchwork, applique and English paper piecing.



I am not sure yet how the blocks will be pieced together as that information will come with the final block in the next issue of Vignette but, here are the three blocks that I have completed to date.



I can't wait now for the next block so that I can finish off this lovely quilt.



I have just learned of an embroidery link up each Monday morning hosted by 'Super Mom - No Cape! So I have linked this post.  If you are interested in seeing some lovely embroidery projects why not pop over and have a look at the linked posts or, join in the fun and link up one of your own posts about an embroidery project you have made.

  1. Beautiful, this third part - Vignette is a really lovely magazine. I waited also for the third part, and this morning, Vignette was brought by the postman. As soon as possible, I will start with it.
    You did a perfect work - it is really nice: the stitchery the application and also your fabrics!!!

  16. I am really enjoying seeing these blocks. They are somewhat reminiscent of folk art, but with a very modern vintage twist. All of those terms sound contradictory don't they - but the designer has done an excellent job of combining all the styles. Of course your additions and colour choices add to the overall effect too!!
