A few more blocks.....

I have been busy catching up with a few more of my Splendid Sampler blocks.  I have continued to work on the applique blocks. I still had one more applique block from those that I missed while moving and there have also been a couple of recent applique blocks. I think the blocks I stitched this week will bring me up to date with all the applique designs. Here are the blocks I have been working on.....

Block 55 is called 'Dedication Rose' and was designed by Lisa Bongean


Block 68 is called 'Wild Roses' and was designed by Pat Sloan.


Pat also designed a cute bonus block for October called 'Wonderful Pumpkin'. I really loved stitching this block!


Now I just need to catch up with some of the blocks using other techniques!!

  2. Exquisite is a word I don't use often, but that's what your stitching is, Christine! Especially love the pumpkin. I didn't see instructions on Pat's pattern - is this raw-edge or needle-turn applique? How do you transfer the tendrils to your fabric?

  5. Wow, Christine! You have worked fast! Beautiful appliqué work, and I would like to know too if the pumpkin was raw edge appliqué!
    Hugs,

  9. These are everso pretty. I was not going to make the pumpkin block because I didn't like the look of it and then I saw yours - perfect.

  14. Beautiful blocks. Love them all. The Pumpkin is extraordinary with the new stitches up your sleeve. The pumpkin season is way too short. Love them in every shape and form. Thanks for sharing. Janita
