This is the first time I have added hand embroidery to my quilt. I created quilts with machine embroidery many times before. This kind of embroidery actually stitches up very quickly and is so therapeutic to just sit and hand stitch. I was an avid cross stitcher several years ago, and I have to say I think I have found a new love.
This pattern was a great way to use fabrics I already had on hand. Can't beat using up those scraps! I made all of the quilt blocks already and just wait each month for the new embroidery design.July's block was just posted... I'm off to stitch!
