Here are a few of my finished blocks
Most of the blocks have a combination of embroidery, needle-turn applique and 3D work.
Can you see the two rows of ecru stitching top and bottom? This was new to me but gives it a beautiful finish. You do a running stitch to the end, and then weave the embroidery thread back through the stitching line.
I think the original design had different material, but when I went to buy the kit, there was a substitute piece. I am still very happy with the colours and am eager to put it all together with the borders.
I must admit, I cheat a little on the needle-turn as I just can't seem to master the art. I make the shapes first using applique paper which is water soluble and should partly dissolve when washed. Then I applique the shapes directly onto my block.
