Block 4 of "Simply Blessed" by Rosalie Quinlan Designs arrived in the post from Australia - I'd signed up to this BOM from Under The Mulberry Tree, and I'd chosen to do the Tilda version. This included all the fabrics, the printed linen, instructions and the Cosmo variegated thread shade 8049. It's been the perfect project for stitching in the mornings with a nice cup of tea...
...once the embroidery was completed, it had a quick press on the back, and was ready for the next step - the applique. A few weeks ago I bought some apliquick rods from The Fat Quarters, and these really are brilliant. I'm using the paper and glue method for the applique, so decided to spend a day at the weekend catching up with some recorded TV shows and busily tracing and cutting and gluing and stitching...
...and finally Block 4 of "Simply Blessed" is completed. This is the result of several relaxing hours of hand embroidery and appliqué, and 10 minutes of machine piecing the borders in place. Now I can have a rest before block 5 arrives!
