It is nearly time for the BOM , it's a little early as I am off on vacation and I have so much to do before we go.
Here it is already stitched onto last months Blocks
Cut 17 1 1/2‘squares in dark fabric of your choice
Cut 16 1 1/2” squares in light fabric of your choice.
Join together to form a checker board design. (see photo)
Cut a 1 1/2” X 12” strip of contrasting fabric, and add to bottom of checkerboard strip. (see photo)
Cut a piece of background fabric 3 3/4” x 4 1/2”, and add it to the side of panel (see photo) then add this to top of month 6.
Trace the stitchery design on to this block, starting on the 3 3/4” x 4 1/2” block and draping down into the side of the month 6 block (see photo)
Block 7 now finished.
I have added this photo to show you ,I sometimes add scrap fabric to the edges, to make it easer to add the sewing ring. Remove when stitchery is done...
I nearly forgot the little stitchery design, I have left the picture like this to show the scale on A4 paper.
There will be only two more blocks and we will then be finished, next months might be a little late as its due just after our vacation.
I am not sure how much time there will be for blogging while we are away, I do intend to do some sewing though. I am taking my 1/2" hexes to do, they don't take up much room, and also my new appliqué BOM.
I did bite the bullet and cut that beautiful fabric and here is a little look at how I am getting on. Two more quadrants to do. I am quite pleased with how it's going.
Have fun stitching Block 7. I did colour in the roof of the little bird house, with Crayola crayons.
Keep safe and keep stitching......Doti...
