    I love to hand embroider. these were done with Aunt Lydia's iron ons. Not done with it, just playing......getting the "feel" of quilting i guess?

    Look great. You have the quilting bug now just like the rest of us. If you haven't already pretty soon all of your dreams will have quilts or fabric in them. Keep up the good work.

    I am almost done with a quilt for my Granddaughter. I will try to post it.
    The top row of the little girls and the kittys is the ones I did for her quilt.

    My idea is........ I do a girl/boy in 2 shades (example...2 shades of blue in her dress) Then for that square I did 2 shades of blue fabric. It was fun, not only for the embroidery, but the picking of 2 fabrics. Thanks for the kind words. Your all sooooooooooooo sweet here and make me feel so welcome

    how adorable! I used to do hand embroidery, untill I got a machine! They just get it done so much faster, and I still prefer the ones with the "hand embroidered look", it's not relaxing though. Keep it up.

    Actually I did a blackwork quilt for my son a few yrs back by taking his art work, copying them, then using a hot iron tracing pencil, I traced each one, fliped over onto quilted muslin, Iron..... Then did all the work in Black...

    This is cute bev. I did a baby quilt for my grandson using the little boys that you used on this quilt, then I alternated them with a bear paw block. The little boys are so cute when embroidered. I never thought about putting the little girls in with them and making myself a quilt !! Great idea !

    He's 27 so kinda hard to buy for, so I thought hrmmmmmm this may be cool. He still uses it. It was already somewhat quilted, so I just put a back on it, and found satin ribbing at Joanns to put around it. It was fun and he sure was excited to see his work on a blanket
