July Blocks

Just a little late, though they were stitched in June. With dd’s birthday at the end of June, & 3 more in July in our home, it’s our ‘busy’ month.

That thread is just gorgeous. What is it?

Jan Quigley said...

Thanks ladies, I only have 1 more block to stitch. I traced it this morning, with a little difficulty!!! Marg I'm just using 2 strands of DMC threads.

They look like they are quilted. Did you use batting behind the stitches?

Jan Quigley said...

Hi Mama Bear, I always put iron-on pellon behind my stitcheries. I usually use the thicker one, but when I have to sew the blocks together & add more batting later, I just use the thinner. I really like the look of having a little padding & it hides any threads you carry across. I always use a hoop when I stitch. :-) cheers, Jan

I like the use of the coloured threads, it adds to the overall effect.
