So far I've used the zigzag coral stitch and the interlaced band stitch. Like them both. I'm excited!

Thanks you two! I hope it will be an heirloom, I am sending to my mom's house where my sister and her kids live, and they aren't know to be the most respectful of other people's stuff. Let's keep our fingers crossed, shall we?

Thanks, friends! I love the hand print block too. I was going to have everyone sign their name on my tablet and print it off but Jo can't write her name yet so I didn't think it was time for that kind of signature block yet.

My mom gave me a small box that was her grandmothers. Last fall I finally went through it. Most of it was embroidery patterns from the Work Basket. There were 2 sets of 7 that I'm assuming were made for dishtowels. 1 of those sets was kitties and the other Sunbonnet Sue's. I decided to do the Sue's for mom's cousin, Suzie, and the kitties for Mom. I originally planned on making dishtowels but they are so expensive so instead I scanned them into my computer, traced them on my tablet, and printed them off onto some 8 1/2 inch squares of fabric (ironed onto freezer paper of course) to be use for quilt blocks. This one is mom's. Suzie's hasn't been started yet, other than printing off the pattern.

This is the first time I've ever designed a quilt. Not the blocks, but choosing blocks and laying them out. It was so much fun! That being said, I'm really proud of it so there will be lots of pictures, starting with pretty ones on the wood shed:


I used 4 different free block patterns I found from around the interwebs. This mod pillow was inspiration for one block, this patchwork wheel inspiration for another, I mostly followed the directions for this Refracted block, and totally followed this Xs and Os tute for the last. My graph paper lay out:

I hand quilted it all.

The border around the middle was just chevrons and pinwheels. I like the secondary pattern they created so for the back I made it again using 8 1/2 inch HSTs. Love it!

Kitties:




And the signature block, my personal favorite block:

Totally know what I'm making for this month's hoop, and I won't be surprised if I see someone else to it too. The pattern, which I have made before for a swap and have seen several other times here on C-ster as well, at least once in this thread I'm sure, will go great for a sampler. I'm excited!

I'm in! I'll be signing up for 3 again, though, hope that's cool. Wink

Yes. She will love it. I almost feel bad holding it back from her until Easter.

Chameleon hound, nice stitching! I like the different stitches you used.
Lindy, that came out nice too. I think it looks better in deeper colors like you used even though when I did it I was feeling like I needed to use paler.

I received from our lovely heart filled cowtown. She made one for each of the kids, including a Wolverine (complete with green patchwork cape), a dreadlocked spiderman, and a Hello Kitty. They are going to love these!
