I've been stitching the most gorgeous BOM that was bought online from Cross Patch in Wales. "Leanne's House" was designed by the Australian designer Leanne Beasley, and is made with a combination of machine piecing, hand embroidery and applique. The pattern for block 6 arrived in the post last week, and I quickly set to work on piecing the mini blocks together, and tracing the stitchery designs. I use a Micron Pigma fine-nibbed pen to trace the designs, and my favourite interfacing is weaveline - it's a very soft, woven interfacing that is fused to the back of the background fabric. DMC threads are used for the hand embroidery...
...and here's the finished block. Julia really does put the most gorgeous fabric packs together, and this one is particularly lovely. Now I just have 3 more blocks to go!
