Beneath the Waves is Month 10 of Seaside Town, a mystery button club by Lynette Anderson Designs. This arrived in the post earlier in January from Cross Patch in Wales. This block features applique and hand embroidery, using hand dyed Valdani threads. These threads are variegated which give a lovely effect to the stitches. I've used a method of applique that uses applique paper, a glue stick and Apliquick tools...
...these sea horses are so cute! This block just needs a final press, then it can be trimmed to size and joined to block 9. This hand painted wooden crab button is the perfect touch - I've just laid it on the block for the photograph, it will be stitched in place once the quilt is finished.
