Daisy Cottage Chairs

18 comments
I've been making 5" square blocks from Daisy Cottage charm stackers. I have been making good progress (slowly) and I have another block design to add.
I hand appliqued the chairs and then machine sketch embroidered the details into the overstuffed chairs.
I haven't sketch embroidered for a while now and it really is fun because it is free and easy and not "in the lines" sketching.
I have 3 chairs completed and need to finish 9 more to make 12 blocks. Each block has been fun to make and I've been inspired from the Daisy Cottage fabric.
Sew much fun to stitch. I need to finish after seeing the latest fabrics from Lori and Riley Blake.
