Wedding Quilt Blocks

Here's an update for you on how i am going with the wedding quilt blocks!

 I have decided that less is more with these, as you will see:-


So here is our butterfly - totally out of balance and looking very strange, but I have embroidered the "be unique" words which I feel explains everything!

In fact, I may have to remove these ones and make them larger, they seem a bit lost in the picture!


So next up is our Miss Sunbonnet Sue, wearing a beautiful purple velvet gown under a sikver something apron, and carrying a bunch of something.  

Don't make it easy for them is what I say!


These two hearts are my second in line favourites - very plain and simple.


Here's my first favourite , this beautiful ribbon with bugle beads and purple beads and purls. Another plain
 and simple one.


My crazy square, I still love it, even if it is off centre just a tad.  If you are looking at this Elizabeth, please don't hate me - you've got to admit it looks good - just needs a bit of creative positioning from you!


 Here is my fluffy ribbon bowy thingy - I am still sewing this one by hand, it's surpriseingly difficult to sew on the machine - or it is for me anyhow!  I'm enjoying doing it by hand and it will look pretty when it is finished. I think. Don't know what that stain is - will have to work on that...

So I have 2 more to go and at this stage at least one of them will be embroidered. Maybe 2.

So I think i've done fairly well, would you agree?

We worked on the squares Elizabeth had and it's looking great.
