#26 Dreaming of dresdens
#44 Stitch in the Garden
This block, by Gail Pain, combined a touch of applique with embroidery. I kept to just redwork for the stitching to match all of the embroidered blocks in this quilt. I outlined the reels with stitching to create more impact as they didn't seem to stand out.
#46 Twirl Time
This block, by Sarah J Maxwell, took a lot of my time to choose just the right combination of fabrics and then the placement of them. I love the way the legs appear to be running away.
#47 Circle of love
A block by Geta Grama. I cut this one out all in one piece and appliqued by machine. The original was cut out all in little pieces, but as I've only used one fabric, it was easier this way.
Another one that took me ages to choose the right fabrics for. I paper-pieced this one and used the very under-used embroidery stitches on my sewing machine for the crazy quilting. Love it!
#49 Summer's Gift
A combination of piecing and applique designed by Karla Eisenach. I cut the outer petals all in one piece rather than separate petals. It made it much easier to get the placement right. Fussy cutting for the centre.
#57 Starting Point
A quick and simple little block by Lissa Alexander. The original has a 4-patch in the centre but I simplified it a bit.
