I know it’s not the 15th today but since it’s Valentine’s Day I decided to post the second block for the Dream Garden quilt a little early. Happy Valentine’s Day everyone!
I never get tired of looking at the quilt! In studying it though I did start to chuckle as I looked over the embroidered blocks. If I had to embroider that same block over and over and over I’d go crazy!
Check this out? It looks like this quilter got bored too! Several of the blocks are the same but there are quite a few where she changed things up a bit. Good for her! A quilter after my own heart! I’ll be giving you the embroidery block in a few months and you’ll get the border early too so you can work on them as you do your applique blocks.
The second block is a pretty one with lots of embroidery. I love the way the long/short satin stitching defines the shape of the petals. Lazy daisy stitches, french knots, buttonhole stitching…………you’ll be busy with needle and thread working on this block!
You can download the blocks each month from the Dream Garden page – HERE
This quilt runs through October 2015 so if you’re impatient and don’t want to wait for the rest of the blocks, you can purchase the entire pattern in the online store on THIS PAGE.
