The latest blocks for my embroidery club!




The top block is almost done, just needs a border around it. The one on the machine is so cute because it is for Christmas and even has a little teddy bear in it. It takes about an hour and a half for each block to stitch out (over 30 thread changes in each one) but they are so nice and will make a beautiful quilt.
I thought Iwould like to make a machine embroidered quilt project for my pastor. The other night I downloaded a lot of gorgeous pieces to use in it, but it will take a long time. Maybe one block a week for twelve weeks. Then I will add pieced blocks (Christian Cross is a nice one that uses color in a bold way) to make it a full sized quilt. I'll stitch one out this weekend and see how long it takes.
