The pattern and hand painted wooden button for the block for month 5 "Hugo and Friends" arrived in the post before I'd even had a chance to stitch the block that had arrived for month 4! As soon as I had time I prepped the block, by tracing the stitchery design with a Micron Pigma pen and fusing a piece of soft woven interfacing to the back of the background fabric (weaveline is my favourite) and piecing the Hens and chicks block together with Aurifil 50wt thread in a neutral colour. Once the applique had been prepped it was hand stitched into place, and the stitchery design was stitched with Valdani threads (both the thread pack and fabric pack had been ordered from Lynette a few months ago when I signed up to this mystery button club from her quilt shop Little Quilt Store in Australia)...
...and here is the completed block. Months 3,4 and 5 will be stitched together to make one of the rows for Anderson's Farm. Are you stitching this one too? If you are, I'd love to see your blocks too - if you are on instagram, use #andersonsfarm when posting your pictures!
Hi - welcome to my quilting blog! My passions are my family, my dog, my friends and sewing, not necessarily in that order!
