The day hubby and I went down to Detroit, I was pretty sure I would finish the hand stitching I had planned to do and wanted another something in the queue in case I had more time. And I did! I didn’t have much time to think about a project, but I opened one of my cupboards and spied a pile of these vintage blocks.
They are round about 17 inches and the background fabric is a rather loose weave. But they are all basted so who am I to argue?
Aren’t these fabrics fun?
I am going to applique the centers and petals and leave the stems until the end. When I get that far, I will trim all the blocks to the same size and then applique the stems.
There are 20 of these blocks. I think they will look great with sashing and corner stones. This will likely be a very long term project, but I will be slow stitching on it today!
Hold the presses! I just found this on Pinterest!
I love the black stitching! But I’ve never done this kind of stitching. I think pearl cotton would work? Any ideas on needles/thread for this? Thanks in advance for any help!
Have a great day!
