BB2 (2)Since Christmas preparations took top priority this past month, I just completed block #2 in Jacquelynne Steves’ block-of-the-month series, Sew Sweet Simplicity.  As with the first block, I used an embroidered panel of a vintage bluebird design.  I’m not sure yet how I’ll be using the blocks.

The piecing isn’t perfect, but then neither is the embroidery.  I like the overall effect, though.  I already have block #3 cut out and ready to assemble.

This was block #1.
