Another 6" block done - this one is Scrapcat's Quilt Shoppe! Yes, you may've noticed that I skipped #008 in the series - I have some ideas, but I need to read up on the technique. In the interim, I played with this one.
I had the nicest compliment about my embroidery. Someone said her machine only does monograms. I told her mine was done by hand. I can't hand draw letters so I typed it out in Microsoft Word. I printed out the pattern and used a light box to transfer to my prepared fabric.
I also decided I needed to add some "quilty features" to my Quilt Shoppe block so I paper-pieced a flying geese for over the door and a square-in-a-square for the window.
Cute, eh? It's made of scraps from other blocks.
I was going to add other quilty effects (like a strip-pieced roof or "siding" made from selvages), but the sections were so small the details were lost in the seams.
That's a lot of pieces!
I've decided to keep a counter at the bottom of these posts to track them.
The totals are based on the original patterns and not on deviations.
