I dug into my large rubber tote of saved test samples, squared up the test blocks and found a a small print in my stash for the alternate blocks, border and quilt-back. I pieced my blocks, then let it all sit while I pondered how I would quilt it so the quilting would stabilize the quilt and not interfere with the embroidery. I wound up doing a simple diagonal quilting. I added a narrow 1/4" flange in a dark green print all around before adding the border and really liked the extra touch that the flange provided. Used commercial binding and added a label on the back. Finally washed, dried, and photographed. Voila! Quilt finished and ready to be delivered.
Some of the individual blocks:
The individual blocks would also look great as an accent of the front of a purse or tote, or a collection of throw pillows, or .... let your imagination run!
Until next time, dear friends, remember:
The Lord's steadfast love toward us is great! The faithfulness of the Lord endures forever! Praise the Lord! (Psalm 117: 2, NRSV)
