It’s been slow going indeed for this block, it hadn’t been touched for ages. But at last it’s finished, block five of the nine New Zealand Botanical stitchery blocks I’m doing. This was designed by Jenny Hunter (as applique) and published quite some time ago in the New Zealand Quilter magazine. I decided to do mine as stitcheries.
I haven’t seen these native buttercups, growing as they do high up on alpine slopes and rocky screes. In summer they grow in profusion and must make quite a sight with their velvety green leaves and bright yellow blossoms against the rocks.
Now – which block shall I start stitching next?
