Mystery Sampler Block, Update to Stitchery

On Monday, at group, we did our April block for our mystery sampler.  Here is my block. My colours are quite subdued to everyone else but I am quite happy with how they are coming together.  I bought these fabrics by Blackbird designs when I first started quilting a number of years ago, so it is nice to be able to use some fabric from my stash.  

Yesterday was my friend Nancy's birthday.  I gave her the little stitchery I showed you on my last post.  I added a hanger but couldn't get one small enough so enlarged the stitchery by adding some cotton lace around the outside so above is the new improved version.  I think the lace sets it off nicely.
Well that's about it for today      Happy Stitching everyone...............


  1. It does look good with the lace border - that was a good way to help it fit the hanger.

  2. Great idea to add the lace to the stitchery! Your block is very pretty in those soft colors! :0)
