The pattern for the second block of Say it with Flowers - this year's mystery button club BOM by Lynette Anderson Designs - arrived in the post from Coast and Country Crafts and Quilts before I'd managed to complete the first block! I was determined to get this one finished on time though, so set about preparing the applique shapes and the background embroidery design. I'm using the Apliquick method of applique for this project, which gives me perfect result especially for some of these tiny applique shapes...
...I've used a selection of Valdani variegated stranded embroidery thread for the hand embroidery, the soft syubtle shades work perfectly with Lynettes fabrics. The embroidey stiches that Lynette uses are very simple too, so even a beginner would be able to manage this project...
...and here's block 2, called Cottage Daisies. The fabric covered domes and the hand painted wooden button will be secured in place one the quilt is assembled and quilted. It really is such a pretty block, I've enjoyed stitching this one so much and I can't wait for block 3 to arrive in the post!
