Block 88 Love is the Answer

So sorry for the delay in posting. It is hard to believe it has been a whole month. Embroidery! This pattern is beautiful. Love, Peace, and Joy! 

Sadly, the Splendid Sampler patterns are no longer available for free, but you can preorder the book that contains all of the patterns. If you haven’t started your blocks yet, it is not too late. It looks like they will be starting a quilt-a-long again in May after the books ship!

I used Sticky Fabri-Solvy to print the pattern on. This product is very easy to use. It stiffens the fabric enough that I don’t need to hoop to do the embroidery. I used embroidery thread from my stash in a red, white, green, purple and light blue with some silver metallic mixed in. Then I stitched it using the stem stitch. Mary Corbet over at Needle ‘n Thread has tutorials for all kinds of embroidery stitches. Make sure to go check it out.

After finishing the embroidery, I trimmed away the excess Fabri-Solvy.

The rest of the Fabri-Solvy is rinsed away with water following the package directions.

Here’s how I quilted it:

  • Stitch around each of the images
  • Loopy Line is used to stitch in the open spaces traveling between images
  • Stitch the border design like the other blocks.

Until Next Time!
