Heart's Desire: Love Entwined

At last I have the first of three block three's of Heart's Desire finished. This block is called Love Entwined. It took me a while to find the right fabrics for the leaves and I chose to do the stitchery in satin stitches, which seemed to take forever, but which looks rather gorgeous.

Here are a few details of block 3:







On Tuesday postie brought part 3 of Christmas Fun. Part 2 is still lost in the post and will be replaced soon.


This is Lynette Anderson's version of Christmas Fun #3. I absolutely love this block. A while back I showed you the fabrics I will be using for this project. I'm hoping to start soon, alternating this project with Heart's Desire.

These are the fabrics which I picked up last week. They are for the first block of Vintage Christmas by Bunny Hill Designs. I joined this BOM which Samsara Quilting is running at the moment.




Thanks for all your lovely comments and a warm welcome to all the people who recently became a follower of my blog.

Love Entwined ziet er prachtig uit en de stofjes die klaarliggen voor je nieuwe werk zijn prachtig.
Ik ben zeer benieuwd naar je eerste update met deze.

Groetjes Yvon.

WOW! The Heart's Hesire block is absolutely gorgeous! You have picked lovely fabrics and the stitching is perfect (as usual).
Now you can start playing with the other fabrics ;o)

The heart's desire block is amazing. The applique and stitching detail must mean a lot of work, but I am sure it is going to look fantastic. I love the fabrics you have chosen
