My Feb Finished!

Have really enjoyed stitching these. As you can see, I opted for blanket stitch applique (its my favourite!). Although I bought most of my fabrics its lovely to be able to incorporate some old favourites from the scrap pile into the small appliques.
Great to see everyones versions! Will have a break from this one for the next week or so now. Keep up the good work stitchers!

lovely blocks. I am partial to raw edge too but decided to challenge myself to the paper, glue, hand turn technique. Kinda like it now.
