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


  1. Pheobe and I have decided to start the 'Bareroots' one. The little houses that your working on. We'll do Dec and Jan. and have them finished for our meeting Jan.

  2. Ooh, I like the one you do, too. It's whimsical and really cute.
