Sun, Sand, and Sea BOM Block 3 Progress

This week, I managed to finish embroidering around the applique on these 4 darling blocks designed by Carla at Creatin' in the Sticks for the Sun, Sand, and Sea Block of the Month. I still need to sew the striped blocks together (the fabric is all cut) and sew the 8 blocks together. I hope to find time to finish that this week!

I used a buttonhole stitch around each piece of applique, stem stitched the legs, and satin stitched the eyes.

This is my first block of the month experience and I absolutely love all of the blocks that have been introduced. I am very thankful that Amy at Sew Incredibly Crazy and her blogging friends have put together such a fun quilt.

Thank you for stopping by!

I am linking with the Monday Stitchery Link Party #109 at Super Mom - No Cape! I do hope you will stop by to see what others have been working on and to check out the free embroidery pattern. If you do any hand stitching and have a blog, feel free to join the link party!

What charming life one would have at the seaside, if one were a seagull.
I wonder what's in his glass, a fish smoothie, kelp cocktail or seafood juice?

It looks like it's going to be a fun BOM, Renee!

That does look like fun. I misunderstood before and thought the seagull was part of a new CQ project. This is an adorable quilt! I especially love the fat little guy in the beach chair! Well done.
