A few weeks ago, Lynette Anderson sent me a gorgeous bundle of fat eighths of her latest festive fabrics, Frosty Friends. It is perfect for this project, Scandinavian Christmas. The applique for block 1 was prepped using the applique paper and gluestick method...
...and the applique was stitched in place by hand, using Aurifil 80wt thread onto the linen background, that had already been embroidered. Once the block has been trimmed to size, the next step will be to make 3 churn dash blocks, and a couple of embroidered blocks that will be pieced together and stitched to the side.
