Hand embroidery has become one of my favorite things to do. I had a lot of fun with this one using different stitches and colors. I am used Sticky Fabri Solvy that I ran through a copy machine. I cut a 7 inch by 7 inch piece of fabric so I could cut it down at the end to square up the block. Lining up the edges so it was straight I stuck the pattern on the fabric using the adhesive of the Sticky Fabri Solvy. You can get the pattern over at the Splendid Sampler or you can preorder the book.
Once I finished embroidery, I trim away the larger pieces of the Sticky Fabri Solvy and then rinse what remains away in the sink. I had to rub a bit to get it to all dissolve. I dried it between a towel and set it aside to dry overnight.
Here’s how I quilted it:
- Stitch around the embroidered hand, scissors, needle, and thread.
- Stitch around the embroidered border using straight lines. I tried not to stitch over the embroidery, but did in a few places. It ends up being a random geometric design.
- Stitch the border design like the other blocks.
You can see the quilting on the back that clearly shows the random geometric design formed in the border of the main block.
Until Next Time!
