Default Embroidered Retro Quilt

I'm glad this one is finished. The stippling behind the embroidery got very boring long before I was done. Most of the 2.5 inch squares in the 9 patch blocks came from various "candy" exchanges here on the board, so it belongs to a lot of you, too. It will now have a home in my guest room.

Very pretty embroidery and I love the way you combined blocks and colors. Very lovely quilt. I would love to have one like it in my house.

Really Really pretty! So glad you're using "candy" charms! Did you do the embroidery as well?
