The quilt below is for my husband's aunt. She is a nun and they are always having fund raisers for the community where she lives. She gave me some antique embroidery blocks to make a quilt with. This is the second quilt me and my friend made the first one was made with embroidered blocks she did herself (the picture at the bottom is the blocks from that quilt).
They both need to now be quilted. Me and my friend will baste these and share the quilting. The picture below is a close up of the embroidered blocks. They were so sweet looking. I chose the yellow and pink fabric from my stash and it was sewed together in one day. We starched the blocks so they would be easier to manage and they were trimmed down to an equal size. Very happy with how this came out.
This is two of the blocks from the first quilt. I have not had a chance to get a picture of the whole top. It is folded on a shelf waiting to be quilted. I like the look of the sashing and borders in this quilt top. It frames the blocks very well. Thank you to my friend who is helping me with this project.
