Block 6 - All A Flutter - is the next installment of the mystery quilt George and the Donkey by Lynette Anderson Designs. This block is filled with cute little bees, stitched with colonial knots. I'm using a selection of variegated Valdani embroidery threads for this project The suggested colours are printed on the pattern for block 1, however you can use whatever brand embroidery threads you prefer...
...these pretty Suffolk Puffs are made with a selection of fabrics from a variety of collections also designed by Lynette Anderson Designs. The muted tones from these fabrics all blend well together. Suffolk Puffs are simple to make and add a lovely texture to this quilt block, along with an embroirded circle which is simply appliqued into position on top of a flower stem...
...the original pattern has an embroidered snail, however I chose to applique mine, and just embroider his shell. The butterfly is also appliqued, and the blanket stitch arount the upper wings are some of the tiniest stitches I've ever sewn...
...blocks 4 and 5 have fields made with a variety of green fabrics, whilst this block has blue clouds - each one made with a different fabric. Once the blocjk was finished, it was pressed and stitched into place. I just need to finish the hexie border then I can wait patiently for the pattern for the final block to arrive!
