One of my Joyful Stitcher trunk shows came home the other day and I got a chance to take a few photos of one of the projects that I haven’t shared yet.
It’s yet another “In Bloom” runner. I have now made 3, so scroll down to see the Christmas version if you missed it. The prints were part of a kit that I found at Bear Patch Quilting Co. in White Bear Lake, MN. The kit included a bunch of fat quarters that I never would have thought to put together, but just loved. I bought the kit, cut a 3 1/2″ square out of each print and added the rest of the fat quarters to my stash or for another project.
I just thought they were too pretty to pass up. I think most of the prints are from Art Gallery Fabrics. I especially love the yellow print inside of the wool flowers. The background fabric can be found here. The wools are from my stash.
Here’s a close up of the stitching. It’s all done by hand using #5 pearl cotton and a whip stitch – which is the quickest way to hand stitch wool! So fun and relaxing . . . If you are interested in learning more, you can click here.
The pattern can be found here. That’s all for today! I’ll be back to share another Christmas finish soon.
