Last night I finished the embroidery
on block #1 of the Garden Steps Quilt Along :)
I'm sooooo loving this!
It's a good thing that Clara and Jenny
over at Clover & Violet
are making me wait a month for each
because I'd probably spend all my time
on the handwork of this quilt and get nothing else done :)
I used backstitching to outline the design.
Then I used french knots in 2 colors for the topiary plants.
I used a satin stitch for the butterflies
and lazy daisy stitch for the flowers on the pots.
I used a french knot as the center of each little flower.
OK....time to get busy
on my tiny houses quilt!
I mean.....laundry and housework :)
