Grapevine Block Done.. on to the Pair of Golden Eagles
I have finished the Grapevine with Swooping Bird block. Like most of you, I have turned the block around. The bird flying upside down didn't seem right to me!
I added the detail embroidered stems to the grapevines.
I've included red and white grapes!
Could these be for a nice Chardonnay?
Now onto the next block - Pair of Golden Eagles. I have drawn the guidelines on my block - there is just too much on these 12" blocks not to draw the placement directly on the block with a water soluble pen. I made some minor changes to the original pattern and selected some of the fabrics - My favorite part!
There are a lot of leaves in this block! I iron down my freezer paper templates to make the leaves. I try to number them so I remember where they go!
And here is the first section basted - ready to stitch!
Summer fruit has returned! Peaches are one of my favorites! These would look delicious in my quilt!
Happy Sunday - my favorite day to stitch!
