Isn’t this gorgeous? Once I laid eyes on it, I couldn’t get it out of my head!
The colors are vibrant and beautiful. I knew I had to make it. And in THOSE exact colors! Simply Stunning.
I had to wait a few months for the class to start at my LQS. I had never participated in anything like this before. While our instructor was giving us the lowdown, the practical side of me was coming to the realization that I would not be making this in those beautiful clear vibrant colors. After all, those are not the colors in my home. Where would I put it? How would I display it? What would the end use be? I wasn’t going to invest the time and just put it away in a closet or drawer somewhere. I decided I would make a bedspread for our King bed with this project, so that helped me decide on the earthy colors. Our homework the first month was to embroider 4 of one block and 16 of another. The king size requires the largest size square and each one has 4 hours of embroidery!! That’s 80 hours for the month and doesn’t include the time to remove the hoop from the machine and trim the applique. Hence, I’m a bit behind in my EmbroidaBlock of the Month! Here’s what I have so far.
I do love it, but need to take breaks from it to work on other things. Enjoying the process.
