The Morrell Quilt

In July I think it was I stupidly signed up for the Morrell Quilt BOM from Threadbear in Castlemaine. As if I didn't already have enough to do but what can I say I fell in love with it when I saw it, impulse buying at it's best! So I have finally been doing some of the blocks. A lot of them are broderie perse (sp?) so I have been preparing them as I have decided not to do needleturn, I already have more than enough hand work to keep me going so these are going to be blanket stitched on the machine. Once again an antique reproduction. Sorry some of the photos aren't the best as I took them at night. A couple of the blocks are pretty complex so I guess I will be doing those by hand as I am not competent enough by machine. At least I have finally made a start!

Those flower and bird choices are beautiful! I love that style of print and they work so well in broderie perse. I look forward to seeing it come together.

Your quilt is looking good, I know exactly how you felt when you saw the quilt at Threadbear - I felt just the same (but I'm glad I waited a found a class!). Please check out my Morrell.
