    I brought this book and all the required materials back in 1990. Just last year I started working on it. As of this past April I have one block appliqued except the embroidery. Have anyone heard of this quilt from Intercourse, PA? When I saw it at the Old Country Store Quilt Shop at the time, I just have to have one. Also, I'm wondering if I'm to do the embroidery on it before being put together into a quilt top. I will attempt to attach the pictures and here goes.

    I've done the embroidery on the first block. It was easier than I thought. Thank you for suggesting to do the embroidery first.

    My first complete block with embroidery.

    You did a lovely job on your applique! I'm not sure about the embroidery, but am thinking you should do it before you put the blocks together.

    I would do the embroidery before putting it together. I would think that it would be easier that way. I have some applique and i fully completed each block. It will be a lovey quilt when done. your applique looks great.

    Very pretty...looks like a lot of work! Way out of my league!! Looks like a project that could take a while to complete, but what a masterpiece when you do.

    I bought that book many years ago. Unforotunately it was one of many books I had to leave behind when I came to Spain to live. You just canīt take everything. I had forgotten the name of the book and I am so happy that you have posted because the quilts in there are to die for. So so beautiful. I didnīt have a clue as to how to go about it then but now I do, will have to search Amazon for the book just to drool over the quilts.

    Your quilt will be amazing and as everyone has advised the embroidery is next (now i no what I am doing in quilting) Keep posting your blocks and let us see your progress. Really well done with this one.
