This is block 2 of Val Laird’s Apples of Gold free BOM. It calls for hand embroidery, but that’s a dirty word in our house so I opted to embroider it by machine. In hindsight, I probably could have hand done it much quicker, by the time I was finished editing, setting up and taking the 15 minutes it took to machine quilt it. I even lazed out doing the little leaf corner border.
The block is made up of a few squares, strips blocks and flying geese added together around the embroidered centre. I like the saying…it’s so true……An encouraging word cheers a person up.
This is block 1 and 2 together.
