Embroidery 101: Stitch and Quilt Along

I've decided to join the Stitch and Quilt along over at Clover And Violet. The quilting I've got down - the embroidery? This could be interesting. LOL

I'm not entirely 100% in love with my fabrics, so don't be surprised if they change. I was hoping to pick up the fat quarters at JoAnn's today, but my local one didn't have any single ones (which were supposed to be on sale) - so I grabbed a pack of 5 (bottom of picture) and stole 4 cuts out of my stash. I think some of the fat quarters are a little dark for the brighter colors in my stash. Didn't have time on my lunch break to wait in the gimundo line at the cutting table to get anything else.

  1. I bet you'll love it when it's done. I get fabric all the time that I don't love, but then when my project is done, I am in heaven! :) You're a brave soul. I need to make a quilt... I am just scared. lol

  2. Ooh, I especially think the hearts and stars prints are cute! I am looking forward to seeing how it turns out. Oh, and you can always change a few of the fabrics part of the way through, you'll get more details with the cutting post this coming week!

  3. I like the hearts and stars too! I actually bought this exact same print awhile ago - pink, purple, and blue. I made a bean bag out of it. :) I'm looking forward to this quilt along!

  4. Your fabric look great. Glad you joined clover and violets QAL, I will be working along with you!
