Some things are difficult to photograph, and I find that embroidered blocks, especially those with lots of metallic thread are among the hardest for an amateur to do well......
All of the angel embroideries in this quilt were made with 3 shades of metallic thread, excluding their hair, skin and some small details. The pot in the bottom right hand corner block is made of silver thread, and hardly shows at all.
Here's the star of the show!
I just love the expressions on the sheep! This is what attracted me to this project at first.
This project was designed by Natashia Curtin of Smee Designs and is found in the July 2012 edition of Australian Homespun magazine, available as an e-edition at Zinio.com
The designer's humour shows in every block. My only complaint is that I was having such fun stitching the blocks, I was sad when I completed the last one!
