    I know better than to make a visit to my LQS.. I always find a new project, even when I dont need one...and I sure dont need one right now.. .still have a ton of sewing to do for the wedding in two weeks, but...

    here is the newest new project.. this is only the first block, but I wanted to show you how it turned out. The original is done in beige and white, but I think winter is more blue, so this is my version.

    There are 14 different sets of blocks with embroidery around a center of pieced blocks.

    The embroidery is done by hand...

    thanks for looking

    Thanks to thimblebug6000 for reminding me to add the pattern name..

    It is Snowdays by Crabapple Hill

    http://www.crabapplehillstudio.com/i...snow_days.aspx

    The embroider side is 6 x 9 inches

    I love this look! With the embroidery overlapping the quilt block, it gives the block a softer look. I like your color choice too, very winter.

    I love Crabapple designs...and especially this one.. I hope I can keep working on it little by little and finish this one before winter.
