What The Mailman Brought!
I'm presently working on the sixth block of my Victorian Fan Quilt, and I was reaching the stage that I did not know what to do next. 9 x 12" blocks is a lot of embellishing.
A dear friend Jenny, in the USA sent me this lovely book by Carole Samples.
From my heart, thank you Jenny
It's a wonderful book, jam packed full of great stitch combinations, I don't think I would live long enough to try out all the combinations, but I will surely try!
Sharon B of In A Minute Ago has a great article about the book and some Dream-a-seam plastic templates by Carole Samples that are used to mark seams on a crazy quilt block before embroidering and embellishing.
Off to CQ heaven to try some more stitch combinations...
