Vintage Valentine Update

Block 1 - all stitched


I have used a matching thread colour and small blanket stitch 
On my  Pfaff Quilt Expression 4
 its stitch 55 with width 2 & length 2.5
 I also adjusted tension down to 5
Because this pattern  was suppose to be hand stitch
 I have used the smallest blanket stitch & match thread colour
 so as the fabric is still the main star rather than using a contrasting thread & stitch.
The added firmness that the fusible applique webbing now gives the blocks will also assist the structure of final wall hanging.

Block 2
ready to stitch today

Info about  Pattern & Kit.
This quilt pattern comes from “The Vintage Spool”by Verna Mosquera.
Described by her as a “Romantic & Timeless Quilt Design”
I purchased the full kit  from Shabby Fabrics about 4-5 years ago.
Checking her website today it is currently sold out.

This is a link to Verna website
The Vintage Spool
where you can get the pattern as well as her current designs.

Planning not to get side-tracked
to get block 2 stitched
block 3 fused today.
