Design Wall Monday–October 24, 2011

I finished my last embroidery block for Winter Wonderland last night – at least I thought I had finished it.  I went upstairs to the sewing room and started pressing all the blocks, trimming them to the correct size and sewing them together.  The last block I worked on was the last one I was ready to trim.  Here it is – before trimming.

When I started to trim it, I thought something was wrong.  Apparently I forgot to trace three more little snowflakes.  So this morning, I stitched the last snowflakes and you can see it completed in the center of the next photo.

Some of the blocks are sewn together and I should be able to complete the sewing tonight.  I then will add the first border and it will be ready to do a fly stitch on all of the seams.

At a sew-in last week, I started cutting the star blocks.  I have been making little kits of the star blocks so hopefully if I have a little time, I can get one block done at a time.  There are 23 star blocks and then some filler blocks.  I am actually believing I will have a quilt some day soon.

I think I am going to take an embroidery break after the fly stitch and knit some socks.

  5. What an accomplishment! I've had this pattern for a couple of years and have finished only 2 of the patterns (in red). Just another UFO in my pile!
