I say a little handwork but actually it will be ALOT of handwork.
I found these hand embroidered squares at a garage sale and just knew they would work up into an amazing quilt. I do know how long it takes to do hand embroidery and I know it took along time to do these 25 squares. So I decided it required hand quilting.
Considering all the other things I've got going I know this project will take some time to complete.
But it will be an awesome quilt when it's finished (if it's ever finished)
I also needed some solid fabric for my embroidery.
And naturally that led me to call Marshall Dry Goods.
I just love that store.
The fabrics are a good quality and the prices can't be beat.
I ordered these 5 bundles on Friday and got them on my doorstep on Monday.
Can't beat that.
I ordered 2 solids and 1 print for me and 1 solid and 1 print for my sister Beverly.
She is the baby of the family and she is taking care of our mother who has been in the hospital off and on for a month. I was going to send her some money to help out but knew she would like this better. Now I need to get it to her. I might just have her meet me halfway.
These are the 2 bundles she is getting
(So hard to let them go)
And this is my stash all put up
Can't wait to start using them. Hopefully this weekend.
I am working on a special quilt top that I need to get put together.
Hopefully I will get it finished this weekend also
