I recently did some online shopping from Under The Mulberry Tree, and while I was browsing their website, I saw this. I just couldn't resist this BOM by Rosalie Quinlan - I'd seen it on her FB page a few weeks ago, and decided to go for it - so I've signed up to get it in this version, made with Tilda fabrics. The kit included these beautiful varigated "Seasons" Cosmo threads, shade 8049, and the handkerchief linen is pre-printed...
...this variegated Cosmo thread is beautiful and is really lovely to stitch with. Once the stitchery was complete, it was time to do the applique, and there's lots of hand applique on this block. I used fusible applique paper, and a Sewline glue stick, which certainly made this part a lot easier...
...I used a neutral coloured YLI silk thread and Clover gold eye appliqué needles for this project. The next step is a narrow border, and corner stones sewn into place...
...and here is Block 1 of "Simply Blessed" completed. This is going to be super when it's finished!
Hi - welcome to my quilting blog! My passions are my family, my dog, my friends and sewing, not necessarily in that order!
