Did I mention that I love embroidery?

I stitched two more designs for the Garden Party Quilt this week. Both are from the same tranfer sheet as last week's spinning wheel. From the size of the paper and the staple holes, I'm guessing they came from a magazine. 

This brings me up to five stitched designs. In my imagination, the quilt is made of lots of different size blocks, using coping strips and sashing to make everything fit together. 

Weekly Stash Report

I picked up 2 1/2 yards of muslin this week to use for the embroidery blocks. I want them to be deliberately mismatched and I didn't have any unbleached muslin in my stash.

I love your embroidery. I have some that I inherited. Some are finished, some are not. I will get to working on them sometime.

Adorable! I'm thinking about turning a lot of cross stitch UFOs into quilted objects vs. framing them too.
