    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?

    Yes, Sheri, I did the embroidery, too. I'm using "candy" for tons of stuff. I'll be back in the trades pretty soon or I will run out!

    I can see why you got tired of the stippling, but it adds a lot to your lovely quilt.
