    I would like to make a full/queen quilt using stamped quilt blocks. I am new to this and would love to hear/pictures from any of you who have done this. I am just getting started on the first block (about 35 to go:) but am thinking of some creative ways to put it together. I would imagine it will take several months just to get the embroidery work finished. Thanks for viewing!

    Look at this posting & the 7th quilt pictured. You could put your embroidered blocks in the blocks where I have appliqued flowers.

    I'm halfway through the Jack Dempsey stamped cross stitch /embroidery Wedding Ring (quilt blocks) for a queen size bed. I think you'll enjoy it.

    How big are your embroidered blocks going to be when you are done embroidering them? Sounds like they might be small. I made a quilt for my DD and my blocks were 12 or 18 inches, can't remember which. And I only used 12 of them.

    Here is a link to pics of my quilt:

    I think they will be about 15 inch blocks. I will wash and dry before putting them together so I think 15 inches will be what I will be working with.

    I embroidered 12 tractor blocks and am making two quilts from them. The first tractors are done in green, red and blue. The second quilt will be all green tractors.

    I changed my layout from this to the next one.

    You're talking about hand-embroidery, right? I've done 1 quilt with cross-stitched blocks and I sort of enjoyed it. The problem was that I found out I don't like to do cross-stitch embroidery. It's way too repetitive and boring to me. Since childhood I've done the regular embroidery with the old-fashioned stitching, but haven't been able to find that in many, many years. Everything is cross-stitch. You can't find crewel work done with yarn either; of course, that wouldn't be for quilts.

    Yes, it will probably take you quite a while to finish your embroidered blocks and if you hand-quilt like I did, it will take even longer, but it will be beautiful and you'll really have something to be proud of. Good luck and enjoy it!

    We had one at LINUS the other day, every other square was cross stitch animals, the "other " squares were a tiny check, all done in lavender...very pretty. I think the cross stitch was machine embrodiery.....very striking
