The final block has been hand embroidered and hand appliqued, and just needs to have a final press, before it's stored away with the others, while I concentrate on sorting out block 1 again! This gorgeous design, by the Australian designer Leanne Beasley, has been a real labour of love over the past few months (the first block was started back in October) - it certainly has been a pleasure to stitch. These gorgeous fabrics were in a kit supplied by Cross Patch, an online quilt shop based in Wales, here in the UK, and are mostly from the Katie Jane collection by Makower UK. Lecien Cosmo embroidery threads were used for the hand embroidery, and they really have a lovely sheen to them.
