The Last Block [December]

Well here it is - finally I can share the December block with you!

I've gone for grey/low volume for this block and it's the first time I've used more than one thread in the embroidery - Christmas is sparkly so I introduced a flash of metallic thread and found a lovely variegated thread from Anchor as well!

The fabrics used are Painters Canvas, Pearl Bracelets, Mama said Sew, Architextures, Lucy's Crab Shack and Lillybelle, Nature Elements and Rock and Romance from Art Gallery.

You can find the embroidery pattern here along with the information on the motifs and the stitches here. The instructions for making the mini blocks is here and for the applique section is here. You can find more information on the rest of the blocks in this series on the Thread Along page and don't forget to share anything you complete in the Flickr Group.

Hopefully the centre of the quilt and the finishing instructions will be with you soon!
