Like many of my blogging friends, I joined up! Then I thought "Just what am I doing!" As if I haven't enough stitching going on! But it's OK - there's no pressure, no-one expects us to keep up. And Pat suggests if we do get left behind, to carry on with the latest block and catch up when we can!
The first block was released on Valentines Day and from then onwards 2 block patterns are being issued each week for 52 weeks (on Sundays and Thursdays).
This is my first block, in progress:
But I decided the green pattern was too busy, and I've changed it to match the outer triangles. The embroidery is nothing to do with the block, by the way, just thought they looked pretty together!
As each block is issued there are links to tips on how to stitch them.
I have to admit I have appliqued the heart in the method I'm used to, which means that I make a template, cut my fabric adding a seam allowance, stitch a running stitch around the edge of the heart, pull the stitches tight around the template, press the fabric, leave overnight to "set", then stitch onto the background with very tiny stitches.
On Friday evening I will be sorting fabric and hopefully making more blocks for my Splendid Sampler Quilt, and then later joining in with Friday Night With Friends (FNwF) over on Cheryll's blog to show what I've stitched.
See you again soon!
