I'd only just finished block 9 of Anderson's Farm (a gorgeous mystery button club by Lynette Anderson Designs) and the next one arrived! Block 10 is called "Welcome Oak" and is made with only 3 fabrics - this pretty blue print, a neutral background for the applique and stitchery, and the wonderful wool for the appliqued tree. This was appliqued onto the background fabric using Lite steam-a-seam 2 (bought online from Barnyarns) and hand embroidered with blanket stitch using Valdani threads...
...the edges of the appliqued arch were folded over using a glue stick and apliquick rods, and appliqued onto the blue print by hand using a fine applique needle and Bottomline thread (this is a 60wt polyester thread and is perfect for hand applique). The hand painted wooden button will be stitched into place one the quilt is completed and quilted. The instructions for this block also included the information for making the borders, which will be pieced together soon. All the fabrics used in this quilt are also designed by Lynette, and are a mixture from her previous collections. The fabric pack including the wool and a set of Valdanin threads came directly from Lynette. There is more info on her online quilt shop Little Quilt Store if you want to sign up this using her newest collection of fabrics.
