This is the little lych gate from "Green Farm Village", my block of the month (www.teddlywinks.com.au). I've had a few queries about "which fabrics to use where". The darker red is used for the gate roof and sides, and the little cross. I have used the cross shape as a template and worked satin stitch over this in dark red to give it a richer look. The mid red is used in the block border. The gate is cut in one piece, and the blanket stitch gives it definition.
Hope this helps!
Bye for now!
