Block 2 of "Hearts and Happy Flowers" is in progress! This is a BOM that was bought from Cross Patch, an online quilt shop from Wales, and the fabric pack was supplied by Cross Patch too. This pattern is designed by the Australian designer Leanne Beasley, and combines a mixture of hand embroidery, machine piecing and hand applique. These Cosmo embroidery threads are rather delicious, and they are wonderful to stitch with - no knotting, or snapping or shredding - and they have a beautiful sheen too. I find it's really useful to use an embroidery hoop, and prefer to use wooden ones with an adjustable clasp rather than a plastic one.
Hi - welcome to my quilting blog! My passions are my family, my dog, my friends and sewing, not necessarily in that order!
