New Block of the Month...Almost Finished

It's almost finished, my new block of the month quilt pattern. I sewed the outer border on yesterday which means it's now time to quilt. Luckily the weather is turning cool down here in Tasmania which means I'll have no trouble hand quilting. It will be nice and cosy.

As promised here are some more pictures of the quilt in progress.



Here's one of the cottages with embroidered trees and vine


This is one of the side panels.



I've appliqued a vine in each corner and added some more embroidery.



The inner corner blocks



Another cottage, there are four in total,


There's a border of Flying Geese




Another glimpse of a cottage and its embroidered garden and Bluebird

I hope to have the quilt finished and patterns ready to go by the end of July, so not too much longer to wait.

And here's a little something from my youngest daughter. My cherubs are on school holidays at the moment and my youngest (who is always wanting to make things) raided my sewing bin in search of some treasures. She was very excited to find some off cuts from my new block of the month quilt and begged me to help her sew something on the sewing machine. Here is the result, a pouch for her little bunny "Floppsity". She was thrilled with her new little bag.



Until next time, happy stitching!
Warmly Lenna

I love it! Totally gorgeous! Hand quilting is the best and your embroidery work is super! Cannot wait to see what it looks like when finished. Nothing like a hand quilted quilt! Very antique looking!
