It's been a few months since I stitched any of my Hearts and Happy Flowers quilt - I can't believe it was at the end of November when I was away at a quilting retreat in Norfolk, when I pieced the blocks together, just leaving the hand embroidery and applique to finish! That row of tiny satin stitched hearts are made up of 1" background squares. This morning I've stitched the applique hearts in place on block 6 - it just needs a final press...
...drum roll please! Here's a picture of block 6 of "Hearts and Happy Flowers" -this 10 part BOM by the Australian designer Leanne Beasley was supplied along with all the fabrics from Cross Patch in Wales here in the UK. This block has been made with a variety of techniques - machine piecing, hand embroidery, English paper piecing and hand applique.
