Finished off Gingham Girls Block 5 last night. I think this is evidence I watch too much tv.
I decided to stitch the lace in the lower block rather than sew lace to the background. Thought I was being quite original until the weekend when Paula and I visited Berry Patchwork and there was a Gingham Girls on display: all the button designs and lace were stitched and we called in to Gerringong Quilt Show where another Gingham Girls was hanging, also with stitched button designs and lace. They were both lovely.
I love all these delicate "Mary Rose" fabrics - the colours and designs are so soft. This is an excellent quilt to make using all your pretty scraps. Yardage is only needed for stitchery backgrounds, borders and binding.
