The next block didn't have any piecing, just lots of lovely embroidery and applique and of course another cute hand painted wooden button! This is Block 7 "Christmas Cottage" - and the pattern is Christmas Fun by Lynette Anderson Designs. There are several quilt shops here in the UK that sell Lynette's patterns and fabrics - my favourites are Patchwork Chicks (this is where I'd bought this pattern, just before Christmas), Cross Patch (Julia has a great assortment of patterns and she has some kits for this one too, although I'm making this with my own "Lynette festive fabrics!), Cowslip Workshops, and Coast & Country Crafts & Quilts. The embroidery was completed with DMC threads, using very simple stitches - back stitch, satin stitch, cross stitch and colonial knots. This cute snowman looks very jolly, and the button will be stitched into place once the quilt is completed.
Hi - welcome to my quilting blog! My passions are my family, my dog, my friends and sewing, not necessarily in that order!
