My Enchantment Continues
Work on the My Enchanted Garden quilt continued this long weekend. I was finally able to get the stitching and beading done on block number 2 - Happy Bouquet.
Here is the finished block, pressed and trimmed down to the final size - 12 1/2" x 16 1/2"
Some detail on the lovely flowers in this bouquet
And of course, the beading. Which I finished on Sunday. :-)
Love all the detail in this quilt. See the petals on the sunflower top layer are not sewn down. Nice dimension.
I have even moved onto block number 3 - Delicious Berries. Here is the photo from the book and part of my color palette in cotton and wool.
I start with the embroidered stems, using a size 8 Valdani Perle cotton. Next are the leaves in cotton and wool, and that wonderful bird.
My sewing room is feeling a little out of control these days. Can you imagine that I might feel a little overwhelmed? I need to learn to focus.. More on that later. :-)
