The next block "Mary" is completed! This is part of a gorgeous quilt designed by Gail Pan (another wonderful Australian designer) and the quilt is called The Sopwell Ladies Basket Society Quilt. This combines lots of techniques - machine piecing (with Aurifil 50wt thread) hand applique (using the applique paper and glue stick method along with Apliquick tools, then stitched in place with Aurifil 80wt thread) and hand embroidery (stitched with 2 strands of DMC stranded embroidery thread). This has been embellished with ric-rac and vintage lace - a few buttons from my button tin will be added once the quilt is completed. This was purchased from Cross Patch in Wales as a kit, and contained the set of 6 patterns (there are six blocks altogether) and all the gorgeous fabrics needed for the quilt top, inner and outer borders and the binding fabric.
