A Few More Embroidered Blocks


 The border on the blocks are scraps left over from making my Triangle Tiles quilt.  The center is muslin. I have a collection of old and new iron on embroidery transfers that I've been using for the centers. I've been using two strands of floss for the embroidery. I like to use variegated threads.  

When I use up the rest of the scraps I'll probably make a different size of block to use up other thirties reproduction scraps.

You are so clever to reuse your blocks,etc and turn them into these beauties. Such lovely embroidering too.

I love this type of old-timey looking quilt....so pretty
hugs, Julierose P.S. did you line the back of the embroideries before stitching?

I love the way you use your scraps in such an organised way to produce some great blocks.

So pretty, and it's always a good feeling to use up some of these old blocks. As your other reader says, it would make a gorgeous baby quilt. But if the older blocks are family heirlooms you will probably want to keep it!
