The next 2 stitchery designs of United Stitches, US25 and US26 have arrived! This gorgeous BOM is by Rosalie Dekker Designs, and was ordered online from Under The Mulberry Tree in Australia. Each month a couple of these little stitchery designs arrives in the post, and I can't believe I've kept this going for the past year!...
...these blocks are quite small, just 4,5" finished, and they really don't take very long to stitch. The 4.5" template that came with the starter set is perfect for making sure the stitchery is centred within the block before it's trimmed to size...
...Once the stitchery designs have been trimmed to size they are ready to be stitched to the pieced blocks that I'd made a few months earlier. US25 of United Stitches has been added to row 7, and then rows 6 and 7 have been joined together. I've used Aurifil 50wt thread for the piecing, along with a Schmetz Microtex size 60 needle...
...this really is coming along nicely! This morning I've added rows 6 and 7 - only another 2 rows to go! This Chirpy Lola fabric is also by Rosalie Dekker Designs and was bought online as a FQ pack from Under The Mulberry Tree in Australia. And now row 8 is coming together at long last!! US26 of United Stitches has been stitched in place too. This time last year I'd just made a start on US001- hopefully in 3 months time I will have finished all the stitchery designs and might even have the borders on!
