Ohhhh look what was waiting for me when I arrived home from work on Friday! Block 3 of "Leanne's House" by the Australian designer Leanne Beasley. This was bought as a BOM from Cross Patch in Wales, and with month 1 there was a beautiful fabric pack for this quilt, along with a selection of DMC embroidery threads. It didn't take long to prepare the appliqué ready for block 3 of Leanne's House. I used the appliqué paper as a stabiliser for the stitchery on the "roses"...
...the applique shapes were hand stitched in place with a neutral coloured YLI silk thread, and embellished with some hand embroidery. I really love this basket of roses! Once all 4 mini-blocks were made they were ready to be pieced together...
...and here's the completed block 3. I really love these fabrics, Julia has put together a really great fabric pack for this project. Only 6 more blocks to go and this one will be finished!
Hi - welcome to my quilting blog! My passions are my family, my dog, my friends and sewing, not necessarily in that order!
