I think I might..I repeat, MIGHT just catch up with my fellow Splendettes on my Splendid Sampler. Well, probably not, but I WILL finish! It is kind of sad seeing this QAL ebbing to a close. Just a few more weeks. Wow! What a year!
Here are the blocks I completed:
Bee Happy – This was by far the hardest block I have done out of all of the blocks. Some how I even managed to have my bee face the wrong direction! My English paper piecing was awkward and a bit wonky. I don’t care though. I am just glad I could do it at all.Look at those teeny tiny stitches! A few of the pieces were only about 1/2″ total size. That made for quite a bit of fabric bulk at the points. All in all I still like it. I don’t think I will be doing any odd shaped, teeny EPP in the near future though!
Hearts and Flowers— I really love this block. If I have learned any one thing through this Splendid journey, it is that I love embroidery blocks.I find it so relaxing to sit in the evenings with a needle and thread and make a beautiful flower or two.It is a pleasure. I am looking forward to getting back to my other embroidered quilt project Salem Quilt Guild.
The rest of these blocks were fairly simple and quick to sew up.
I am excited to see these SWEET blocks all come together. I think I have even decided on a setting for them. We shall see…
