    Lydia Logs

    This is a simple log cabin I will also donate to the Lydia Project.
    I used my embroidery machine to do the applique and motifs along the top and bottom.
    A professional quilted it.

    T is it True? H is it Helpful? I is it Inspiring? N is it Necessary? K is it Kind?

    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    I like the placement you chose for your embroidery blocks along each side of the quilt.

    Love the muted soft colors and your gorgeous embroidery. Another beauty to make a recipient feel hugged and loved.

    Love the quilt and going to a great cause! Did you do the embroidery before adding the block to the quilt.? I often wonder what it looks like on the back if you quilt after putting the quilt together.

    in this case i did. the satin stitch would look awful on the back.
    also, i knew i was going to get somebody else to do the quilting.

    how the embroidery looks on the back depends on the embroidery.
    single-run quilting motifs look just fine.
    double-run quilting motifs can look a bit "iffy", depending on the color used.
    regular embroidery (like multi-color satin stitch flowers, for example) would make the quilt look pretty awful on back.
