Two More Jo's

I have got two more made from my Jo Morton project - remember I needed to put in more 
colour so these two don't use much red.

Now it is back to my Yoko Saiton block which is going to need umpteen dozen French 
Knots once the applique is done. It is a Clover block so the clover flowers are done with 
all these knots - just as well I think they good on hers!!!!!


  1. Once again lovely fabrics and designs Robyn

  2. Just wondering how to learn where to put embroidery - it really makes the blocks but are there any princples to follow?

  3. I'd be interested in the answer to Alison's question too. I love the block on the left in particular - the grapes or flowers are beautiful - gorgeous fabrics!

  4. Thanks for your comments. When it comes to the embroidery I use Yoko Saito's book as a guide. But the basic idea seems to be wherever you can find a space that looks like it needs filling. Eg: veins on leaves, stamens on flowers, tendrals in background spaces, outlining of an area that is disappearing more than you would like - I just go looking for opportunities and usually use back stitch or stem stitch if I want a heavier look, French Knots.
