Block 5 of A Merry Christmas Garden is finished! I love the simplicuty of this design by the Australian designer Gail Pan, there's nothing complicated, just simple patchwork piecing and applique - with a little bit of hand embroidery added too. The applique shapes are not too small and fiddly, and I've usually managed to prepare these in the evenings after a busy day at work. A few more berries are scattered over this block, and simple bias strips are used for the heart. Only one more block to go - I've really enjoyed stitching this project and can't wait to see all the blocks joined together! If you want to make this gorgeous quilt too, this set of patterns and all the fabrics were supplied by Cross Patch, an online shop based in Wales, here in the UK.
