The labels for "Leanne's House" have been appliqued into place and the quilt is now finally completed! The stitchery designs are by the Australian designer Leanne Beasley and the words were drawn freehand. Leanne's stitchery designs were initially traced onto paper using a pencil. Once I was happy with the layout, I used a very fine Sharpie pen to trace over the pencil lines. My paper "label" was then put on a light box and the fabric placed over the top and the design traced using a Micron Pigma pen, and finally hand embroidered using 2 strands of DMC thread. The labels were appliqued into place by hand, making sure the stitches didn't go all the way through to the front of the quilt.
