An Embroidery Project in 2013

The Bernina quilt shop where I teach has started a new embroidered quilt as a monthly class.  Altho nice and easy, it is very unique and I decided to participate in making this.  Here is the fabric (all batiks) and thread that I chose.  The dark purple is the block onto which the embroidery designs are sewn.  I'm using 2 thread colors, yellow and pink, in a cotton quilting thread.  The gold fabric is for sashing and the fushia will be a border and corner stones.  The layout of the quilt is a simple 24 block horizontal/vertical layout with sashing and cornerstones.

And here are the sew outs for the first class.  There are 12 designs in all and we get 3 each class, making 2 of each design.  These blocks still have the stabilizer on the back and have not been pressed nor trimmed to size.  I just folded under the edges and laid them on the floor for the picture.  My blocks will be about 7" finished.

Aren't these so unique???  The owner of the store digitized them.  I don't know if they are for sale or not, but if  you really are interested, please contact Temple Sew and Quilt Store, phone #254-774-9797, email  Inquire about the current Countdown to Christmas designs that started January 2013 and tell them "that Sue Halter person" said to contact them! 

Keep on Stitchin'!!
