Blocks are Stitched using Transfer Eze

This is what I use when doing the stitchery, it dissolves easily and leaves no trace behind, MUCH better than tracing! I order mine from Bird Brain Designs http://www.birdbraindesigns.net/products/514-transfer-eze.aspx  I have now stitched all of my blocks except the label one, the first border is on and I have to fabric to finish the top, loved stitching it, when we were on holiday in the USA in a little town called Drummond in Montana there was a little store called The Quilt Patch, I showed her the blocks I had made and she was so excited she took down all the details, wonder if she'll ever do it?




These are the other two background fabrics I think I am going to use for the other borders.
OK, off for a coffee and to do some stitching before bed.
Goodnight All!
