The sun is shining, I am still breathing .... life is good! I have decided to place myself on a media diet and lock myself up in my happy place, quilting/stitching away .... !
I managed to finish this cute little quilt called My Little Year by Kathy Schmitz, started in September 2016.
And ... I completely finished, quilted and bound, My Little Home. If you recall, it was at a flimsy stage back in September 2016.
I so enjoy working on these small projects! Each hand embroider block takes approximately 2.5 to 3 hours to stitch.
As opposed to tracing each block, I use Transfer-eze. If you haven't read my recent post on this product, do so here.
In order to not only save fabric but also make the cutting of the stitched block easier, I trace a square on a large piece of cotton fabric using an Omnigrid 3 1/2 inch square and Sewline Stayer Permanent Market - brown.
I will then place the water soluble transfer on the fabric and stitch my block.
I only place the transfer when I'm ready to stitch a block and keep all the other photocopied transfer with the pattern. This way, there's less of a chance that I'll lose a block. Yea, it's happened before ...!
Thanks for stopping by. Enjoy your day! Cheers!
