For those of you who also follow my FB page, you'll know that I've been busy stitching early in the mornings, while I've been enjoying the peace and quiet before everyone starts to get up and get ready for work. Those early starts have been very relaxing, and very productive! The pattern allows for this block to be personalised with your name, and I can almost smell that bucket of mint...
...one of the mini-blocks is a fussy cut block using the feature fabric (Grandmother's Flower Garden, by Rosalie Quinlan), and a pair of blue birds are perched among the cherry blossom...
....this block features another watering can filled with hand-embroidered flowers and bright red butterflies are dancing among them. These were machined into place using raw-edge applique. Block 8 of "Down In The Garden" (designed by Leanne Beasley) is now complete, and I must admit I can't wait to make a start on Block 9 sometime over the weekend!!
Hi - welcome to my quilting blog! My passions are my family, my dog, my friends and sewing, not necessarily in that order!
