groom block

I haven't worked on my blocks for a very long time. Seeing posts with completed quilts got me motivated again - thanks! Finally last night I finished my groom block. Well - sort of finished - he still needs some embroidery. He's supposed to helping his bride pick apples. I think He might also need something to stand on - opps :0)Only 5 more blocks to go and then the borders!
Happy Easter!

  3. They look lovely together, a good match. Keep up the good work, you are nearly there, it is very rewarding when you can finally sew all the blocks together. Ann in NZ,

  4. I really like the idea of adding a groom and this groom is a very handsome one! I'm only doing my first block, so no need to think about brides and grooms yet ;)
