To Everything There Is A Season…Block 8

Where did October go?!?  It’s time for me post the 8th block of “To Everything There Is A Season”, a BOM I launched back in April.  If you are new to my blog and you haven’t seen the blocks yet, here they are!  All of the patterns are available for purchase on my website Simple Bird Studio.  The patterns are available either as a digital pattern (which I will email to you) or as a paper pattern (which I will mail to you).  The choice is yours.

And here is Block 8, The Poinsettia, just in time for the upcoming festive season.  (It will be here before you know it!)


Here are a few close-up photos. The yellow centres are made of Ultra Suede.  This is where I purchase  my Ultra Suede.  I love the little bit of texture that Ultra Suede adds!  I also stitched around each yellow centre with one strand of gold embroidery floss.  I added a few French knots to the flowers, but I used 2 strands of embroidery floss for those.


I also used one strand of brown floss to embroider around each of the ovals on the vase and around the darker handle on the right side.  Fancy!


Til next time…

  1. Gorgeous blocks 🙂 I haven’t done applique in a very long time but recently had a desire to pick it up again. I’m using your Peggy’s Puzzle as my “get re-acquainted” samples before I tackle more involved patterns. Thanks so much for the freebie’s 🙂 Love your blog and your videos.

  2. These are all beautiful…I am not skilled enough yet to attempt these but I really want to make that little squirrel block! Here in my neighborhood the are frequent visitors and delight me with their antics. So as I practice getting better at applique I am going to hold this block in my mind hoping to be able to do it in the future 🙂

    Your blog and applique are an inspiration 🙂
