That’s right!  You read it correctly.  I finished the rest of this block during my Sunday Slow Stitching last Sunday!  I started prepping for Block 6 and here’s what I’ve got waiting for me today.

I’ve traced all the pieces onto freezer paper and they are all cut.  Next step is to iron them on to the appropriate piece of wool and then I can cut the the fabric and place them where it needs to be.  I love the different colors of thread I get to use for this block.

Until next time…

  1. I’m excited to see your next Rainbow Garden block come together — I like the colors, and those threads are delicious!

    • Thank’s Jenny. I can’t take credit for it. I saw it on somewhere else and have now been doing it for the last 4 years. It’s been great watching my progression from year to year.

  2. Ok. You have officially inspired me to finish a hand sewing project so that I can begin my wool projects! I was amazed at how the little blue flowers brightened up the entire block! Lovely!

  3. Nothing out works when there is nothing in. You’ve done well on the stash busting front this year. Your wool block turned out beautifully. Enjoy the next one.
