I thought I’d share another block in my Stitcher’s Garden BOM Quilt that I am happily creating. As you know, I am making two quilts at once. One quilt is the group quilt. For that quilt our instructor is selecting the material for each of our blocks. My other quilt is being created with fabrics of my choosing. For month 4 we received two blocks. The first block for month 4 I shared with you last week. This week I want to show you the 2nd blocks I made for month 4.
These blocks were a lot like block 4. In the center of these flowers I made yo-yo’s to sew in later. I also attached cording around the frame of the block using a beading foot. This process is called “couching”. I used Elmer’s washable school glue to set the cording in place, then using the beading foot, I attached the cording to the block with a zig-zag stitch. I sure am learning many different techniques while making this quilt. It is so much fun! Happy sewing! Kathryn
