Month 12 "End of the Rainbow" is the final instalment of Seaside Town, the mystery button club by Lynette Anderson Designs - this pattern, alonv with the cute hand painted wooden button, arrived in the post from Cross Patch in Wales. I was hoping to get this block finished while I was on a quilting trip to Yorkshire, but I just ran out of time...
...well finally the applique and hand embroidery (I've used variegated Valdani Threads for that) has been completed. Lynette suggested in her instructions to use a bias marker with optional adhesive strips, but I just made normal bias strips, with dots of Roxanne Basting glue to hold it in place, then secured it using Aurifil 80wt thread by hand. The kite tail was drawn freehand, and travels along several blocks, with randomly coloured bows that are satin stitched. The final embellishment is the hand painted wooden button, which will be stitched in place once the quilt is completed. Now the next step is to add the inner border, and complete the blocks for the outer border.
