This shows all the blocks that make up "Simply Blessed" designed by Rosalie Quinlan. I bought this as a BOM online from Under The Mulberry Tree in Australia, and chose the Tilda option. The first block arrived back in October 2014 and I never believed that it could look so beautiful. Each month another one arrived, and included the screen printed linen, the Tilda fabrics and skeins of Cosmo Seasons variegated thread shade 8049. This has been hand embroidered, and the Cosmo thread supplied compliments the colours of the Tilda fabric beautifully. The satin stitch areas were stitched with a pale aqua and pale brown DMC threads from my thread box as I didn't really like the "stripey" effect of the variegated thread, but loved the way it looks across the rest of the stitching. The hand applique was completed with applique paper and a glue stick and apliquick rods. The borders were then machined to the main block. If you click on each picture it will enlarge it and you can see more details.
