The 6th and final block of A Merry Christmas Garden is completed! The hand embroidery has been stitched using a Valdani Perle thread from the Cross Patch Favourites collection, and just uses some very simple stitches - back stitch and Colonial knots. The simple applique shapes have been stitched in place using Superior Threads Superbobs in an assortment of colours. This gorgeous festive quilt is a 6 part BOM by the Australian designer Gail Pan, and was supplied as usual by Cross Patch, an online shop based in Wales, here in the UK, along with all these beautiful fabrics. Now I just need to add the two borders and give it a final press before it goes off to the longarm quilter!
