Stitching


I'm back working on my stitchery blocks for Ruby's Garden, I started these a while ago. And now want to get it finished into a quilt. There are 12 stitched blocks that alternate with something like a Irish Chain block.




I'm almost finished block eleven and then I have one more to go and I'm finished all the stitching. I'm thinking the Irish Chain block would be a green instead of the dark blue in the picture below but I'm still undecided so anything could happen.













Happy Quilting!

Sweet stitchery. I hadn't seen this pattern before. Is it a downloadable pattern. I just finished a big stitching project and would love to do something small like this.

It's a great hand work project! Then the setting of pieced blocks really sets it off nicely. So cute...brings out that inner little girl in me! Where to find pattern?

Darlene said...

I remember when you started this project, Wendy. I can't wait to see your finish. It's really wonderful.

Lovely stitching! I love these baskets and the setting pattern too.

I love those blocks Wendy! Tell me about the pattern, ok? It is going to look great with the chain blocks. :-)

Such a lovely quilt and your stitcheries are gorgeous!

Those stitcheries are very cute! I may have to look up that pattern. You're right, I would go with a nice lighter colour for the chain pieces too, maybe even a nice purpley blue like the flowers in the first picture? Dark colours would be too heavy I think.

I would light a nice green to echo the garden theme. Lovely work!

Teresa said...

Pretty blocks. I just love the look of hand stitched blocks in quilts and I know this one is going to be a beauty.

Lynn said...

Your embroidery work is so impressive! I am in awe of you! I love the chain block that will go between the blocks. Awesome!

Louise said...

This was such a fun quilt to do. Both the stitchery and piecing. Thanks for reminding me that I need to get mine on my Gammill!

What lovely stitcheries! I haven't seen that particular pattern before. I love the background fabrics you have chosen too. Being a stitchery buff myself I really appreciate the work you have put into it all. It is going to look awesome when it is completed.

Carole said...

Oh.... lovely! I better get my behind moving. My blocks have been done for an eternity, but I just haven't pieced the quilt! Love how your blocks turned out! Thanks for sharing! Cheers!

Such sweet little blocks and I think that setting for them would be great. I have that pattern as well - great inspiration to get mine out sometime in the near future.
Hugs - Karen
