|Ferns and Berries - Florence Block 1|
Wishing you all the best, thinking of you.
A couple stitching friends sent me photos of their current work and gave me permission to share with you.
Florence shared her Ferns and Berries project. She's using a small reproduction indigo print with red berries and reverse applique.
For the berry stems, she's using an embroidered chain stitch.
|Antique Quilt from our collection|
This is our original - from our pattern cover.
The antique quilt is very heavily hand quilted with detailed motifs.
The original had embroidered stems that connect the berries to the foliage.
Florence shared her berries in process.
There is no one best way to do berries.
She is enjoying the berries - and the project!
Just like that... she has a pile of berries ready to applique.
I often find repetition relaxing for a portion of my day. The Mary Witherwax quilt had many berries. Doing a few each day, broke it down and before I knew it - they were done!
|Ferns and Berries In Process|
This is the block before the vase, berries and stems.
It's pretty as is - but completed - it's a stunning block.
Looking forward to seeing the next block!
My friend D is a quilter and does embroidery.
She's enjoying a lot or red these days!
I've shared her work here before, so I think your will like
seeing what she's up to this month.
