Block #3, the Bride

The second block I made is block #3, the Bride. I decided to make her in her wedding finery and give her a wedding bouquet instead of the second apple. She was quite time consuming to make but I enjoyed seeing her emerge from the little pieces of fabric. Here she is:

  1. Oh Linda, she is just beautiful. Her inked face just gives her such personality. The little flowers on her shoes and the tiny French knots scattered amongst the flowers add such a special touch. You out did yourself. I just lover her lacy pantaloons and the inking details on the roses. It adds such a vintage feel to the block. Very well done!

  6. You are very brave to give her a face. The block is lovely. I like that you made it your own. Maybe you could do a tutorial on faces and/or flowers?

  9. I was working on my bride and started getting some awful pains in my wrists and almost gave up. I'm so glad I kept at it - everyone's kind words have really touched me. Thank you so much. I do think I'll take a few days off now and work on something other than a hand project for awhile to give my wrists a rest.

  16. Thanks again for your sweet words about my bride. Since there were a few of you who were interested in the technique for the face and asked for a tutorial, though I'm by no means an expert at this, I typed up on my blog the steps you could try - http://sewmanyjoyousthings.blogspot.com/
