Handstitched - Dogwood Blossom

The Handstitched class via the Stitched in Color blog is now under way and we have completed our centre Dogwood Blossom.

Reverse appliqué, mitred corners and blind stitch are all new to me and I am learning a lot already which makes me excited about the rest of this quilt and the things I will try before it is done.

The inner points of my Dogwood blossom are not all that pointy and you may notice it isn't exactly centred either.  I also used too much spray baste (first time using it) and did get into a sticky mess with that.   I only mitred the corners on the first border around the blossom and not on the second coloured border.

The next part of this quilt is where we embroider the white border shown.. Eeek! 


  1. Sounds like a fabulous list of new skills you're acquiring. I love the Lotta fabrics, i'm using them on a hexagon quilt too, slowly, love Posie

  2. It's fabulous Becky, I LOVE the colours, wow, really pops.

  3. Gorgeous colour combo Becky - very nice.

  4. Really like your color choices. Interested to see your floss colors!

  5. I love the fabric you are using. The colours are looking great!
