Thank you! There is a pattern for French Roses by Heather French, BUT...everywhere I looked it was out of stock! So...I found the next best thing...a blog where someone actually showed step by step how to make a French Rose block. This is the site: http://quilt-knit-run-sew.blogspot.c...ose-block.html
The other blocks were made from tube quilt piecing. (Much easier than I ever anticipated it would be!) And this is the tute that I used for it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vOWSp0mTTqE

This is the start of information on embroidery since I am so new to it.
Originally this post was a "user page" on the old forum format, and became a blog entry on the new forum software. I am more than willing to go with the flow but it will no longer be full of external links to embroidery sites. In the time since this post was first created, I've pretty much found my little niche with the embroidery and just need the time to do the projects I have lined up.

1. Can anyone suggest how to get your blocks lined up perfectly at the joints without so much back tracking; fixing blocks that moved.
Glue baste the joins instead of pinning the joins. I do this at the ironing board. Align the seams as you want them, then put the tiniest dot of glue inside the seamline and press with the hot iron. I use Elmer's washable white glue. The glue washes out later or, if you need to open up the seam, comes apart if moistened with a drop of water from your fingertip.
