After about 2 1/2 years and many hours of hand (and some machine) stitching the top is finished.
All the blocks and borders, except the triple Irish chain block, are hand pieced or hand appliqued. The quilt features 27 broderie perse blocks. Each of the elements were hand stitched with one strand of Guterman sewing thread using buttonhole stitch.
Each block is 10 inches finished.
Some blocks were simple piecing with only a few pieces, others were more challenging.
Along the way I learnt a lot of new to me techniques. I really enjoyed making this quilt.
The Sarah Morrell quilt was designed by Di Ford and the pattern is available at Threadbear in Castlemaine. I have a little about the original quilt's history in this post.
