Love and Hugs From Australia Stitchery Block

Love and Hugs From Australia Stitchery Block


A group of Australian Designers have come together to create a Stitch-Along to keep us in good spirits while we are in isolation. If we can't get out and about at least we can all stitch along together.
Above is your free 6" block pattern which I created for you to download and stitch. 

Thread colour I used. Please feel free to use your own colours, but I do have fellow stitchers sometimes ask, so....
DMC Colours - 370 (green), 420 (tan), 422 (caramel), 926 (blue), 3830 (rasberry), 3859 (pink), 3861 (mauve) and 3790 (brown).

I have also created some project ideas for you to create if you like.
We have fabric packs available for sale.
