Finding Hidden Treasures
This block had been prepared absolutely ages ago, and tucked away in a "safe place" - after weeks of searching for it, I found it safely tucked inside my box of Lynette patterns!! This morning the wool applique flowers have been secured in place with some blanket stitch using DMC embroidery threads...
...once the appliqued block is pressed and trimmed to size, these 3" Ohio Star patchwork blocks will be added to the lower edge. I'd used a selection of fabrics designed by Lynette for these blocks, and love how these colours work well together even though they are from different collections. This pattern is "Little House Block Book" and will be a place for storing my quilt blocks - the pattern I've got is quite old, and the instructions are for machine piecing the Ohio Star blocks. A newer version of the patterns has instructions for constructing the blocks using EPP, and a set of acrylic templates and pre-cut papers is also available.
