Embroidery Scheme

Tonight was the Young People's Sit and Stitch at Quilting Adventures. I love going to this once-a-month meeting.

For a few meetings now we have been talking about doing some sort of swap, block of the month, or bee. Since most of us (at least, the ones that always attend) are hand embroiderers, we figured it should be an embroidery event.

Tonight we decided to do a block of the month (or something like it), but we can't decide on any patterns! We all love the Melly & Me Once Upon a Time BOM. It's only nine blocks, but each block costs $13. Kind of pricey, but they are so cute! I secretly wish we would do this one, and I think everyone else does, too.


This Wee Wonderfuls Four Fairies Stitchettes Pattern is also really cute. Of course, there are only four real blocks, with some small additional designs included for each fairy.

I looked on Etsy and found tons of awesome patterns, including a couple I have seen around the internet and wanted to try for myself. Here's a run-down:

-1109 Poplar House Pattern from juneatnoon.

-Bird and the City and all other patterns from revi1001

-Christmas Embroidery Set from Badbird

-F Fox and all others from the Alphabet set at penguinandfish

-Princess and the Pea by kloin

-Tree of Life and others by polkaandbloom

-Little Houses, Cakes, and Cakes 2 by The Floss Box (plus These bunnies!)


-Sadie and Oliver has some cute, weird patterns

-Acorn Cap Pattern by Cate Anevski

Quilter's Obsession

Gotta tell ya.

Quilter's Obsession is the best website I have ever ordered from, hands down. Debbie provided awesome customer service over email and I received my package TODAY. Yeah. I ordered it on Friday (I think). Holy Hell, that was fast.

I will definitely order from there in the future and highly encourage you to do the same.

Unfortunately, the fabric was not the one I was looking for.

It's finally time to reveal my super secret project, Modify Tradition

Starting this month (wow, it's already November), I will be blogging with Crystal of Sonnet of the Moon on a special project dedicated completely to traditional quilting. We'll post tutorials and inspiration each week, along with musing on color, fabric, and what makes a quilt modern.

If you quilt along with us, you'll have a gorgeous modern sampler of traditional quilt blocks at the end.

Come on, you know you need another unfinished project.
