My ongoing project is called Life Is Beautiful, a pattern by Helen Stubbings. These are the three kinds of blocks I am hand stitching every week... I like variety! I have one in the hoop to embroider, one of the embroidery blocks being appliqued to a 4 patch background, and the cut away fabric behind the embroidery circle being appliqued onto another 4 patch block.
And here are the first 25 blocks on the design wall.
I think there are 63 blocks in the finished quilt, so after more than a year of working on this project I am not even at the half way point in block construction. That's okay because I am enjoying every stitch!
Once these are all done, the next step is to hand quilt each block, and then I will join them together in the Quilt-As-You-Go style.
In Canada we are celebrating Mother's Day today, so Happy Mother's Day to all the fabulous moms out there in our slow stitching community.
Sorry everyone... I am unable to figure out what the problem is with the linkup. After working on it for a long time today, I am no farther ahead in narrowing down how to make it work. Stay tuned to see if I am smart enough to figure it out and/or have enough patience to keep at it!
