Homework is Finished

I spent much of the long weekend piecing the rest of my Gingham Girls blocks using some very pretty florals and loads of pieces from my scrap drawer.  The pattern has many applique hearts but I probably won't be adding many as I don't want to cover up the lovely big flowers.

I've enjoyed making the heart-shaped and circle blocks - these have been made following the method shown in "The Wish Quilt", using freezer paper and stitching the cut-out shape to the background stitchery fabric.  The Gingham Girls pattern has these shapes blanketstitched but I didn't think that would suit my fabrics.

Gingham Girls - My Favourite Things - background blocks
Block 2 - "My Favourite Teahouse"
Block 1 - "Tea"
I love stitching these blocks.  I've come across a few more errors in the patterns - there is no "I" in "ANTIQUE" in block 4.  Background fabric for the Chinese doll in Block 10A should be cut 9-1/2" not 9".

While I was in Queensland with Diann, she told me our next block in Sylvia's Bridal Sampler was to be "Road to Oklahoma" - finally got around to making it last night, so I'm now up-to-date.

"Road to Oklahoma"

Your Gingham Girls are adorable! You have really got a lot done lately.

It's good to see another Sylvia block done. I had to take a few months off on mine to let Joy catch up. Diann better start doing some of the hairy ones or you are going to end up with all of those at the end. LOL!
