Here comes the bride

I have really enjoyed the creative ways that other people have done this block. Mine is pretty true to the original, but I enjoyed stitching her! I used a Pigma pen for her features, but I may use a strand of embroidery thread later.


  1. Jane
    Your first three blocks are looking great. What background fabric are you using? It looks like a muslin maybe? Whatever it is, it is a nice stage for your applique.


  2. Thank you. The background is called Shadow Play by Maywood Studio. It is kind of a tone on tone which has a very light gold look especially in sunlight. It is a beautiful fabric.

  3. Your bride is VERY pretty! I like what you've done with her legs. I'm about 1/2 done this block and its my favorite so far.

  4. Hi TexasJane, again, beautiful block. YOu have so many done should put them all together in a picture!!

    In stitches,
    Teresa :o)
