Thankful… Blocks 5 and 6

Before I embark on a busy, busy 2 days… I wanted to show you the last 2 blocks of "Thankful".
Block 5 reflects the hearts and roses of Block 1 and Block 3, with the addition of a lace-trimmed, dimensional bow. The "Thankful" panel is embroidered with a gorgeous variegated thread and is framed either side with some more rouching.

This heart is 2 toned, bordered with a lighter fabric.
French knots surround the heart as in the other panels, helping to give the overall design that old world feel.

The final block… Block 6, has 2 panels.

Stitchery, lace covered fabric and reverse applique make up the first.

And the other features a third "faux doily".

As you can see, each block has loads of technique variation. I wanted to create a project that was fun to create. There is a lot of hand stitching, which I love to do of an evening. Do you? Sometimes, it can be quite hard to put it down… "just one more stitch" frequently evolves into a very late night here.
I hope you've enjoyed seeing Blocks 1 to 6, over the last few days.
I'll be back tomorrow, after our first day at Australian Quilt Market, to show you the whole quilt!! 
Until tomorrow,
