It's finished! My latest project "Bless All Who Enter" is a small wall hanging, approx 12" x 18" designed by Natalie Bird of The Birdhouse Patchwork Designs, and was purchased as a kit from Cross Patch, a fabulous online shop based in Wales, here in the UK. The kit included all the pattern, and all the fabrics needed to make the wall hanging including binding and backing. These gorgeous fabrics are by French General for Moda...
..I've used a selection of DMC threads for the hand embroidery. The blocks are machine pieced together with a neutral coloured Aurifil 50wt thread, and I used the same thread to quilt it in a very simple stipple design. Buttons were used in a creative manner to replace the satin stitched flowers!...
...one of my small hand embroidered labels has been embroidered to the back of the wall hanging, to remind me of the year it it was made. A narrow quilt sleeve has been stitched to the back, so it;s all ready to display on the wall of my sewing studio. Now it's time to tidy my sewing table, clean and oil my Bernina, and have a think about my next project!
