Here I go--I began with Sabrina's name as I started making her quilt. I finally decided to choose blue for the lettering. Lots of blocks to follow--that will be fun for me. And I'm posting close-up photos of the applique blocks that I made on Jenna's quilt. The house block is a very simple one, with embroidered running stitch edges on the house, and on the door. The hearts are embroidered with white blanket stitch.The bird is embroidered with black blanket stitches, and has a French knot eye and chain stitched legs. The flower pot is made with a running stitch around the edge. The flowers have white blanket stitch around their edges and French knots decorate the centers of the flowers.
