Embroider the sweet little characters using a hand stem stitch and french knots. Or, use this pattern to showcase vintage embroidered linens.
The embroidery squares are 6″ x 6″ and perfect for incorporating antique hankies, squares cut from embroidered towels, pillowcases, and other beautiful finds from the thrift store. Change the quilt’s border color to go with the linens you want to feature, if you want, or to match your decor.
This block from Dee’s Doodles gives you an idea of how a square from a vintage linen could look in the center of a Log Cabin block.
Piecing of this quilt is very easy. The modified Log Cabin blocks go together quickly once you have the centers ready to go. It’s also a simple project to make it larger. Just add more blocks. It will make a beautiful bed quilt made from a collection of hankies or vintage embroidery.
Of course, you can make the quilt as designed for a new baby gift. Any mom will love this sweet charmer with its adorable embroidered critters.
The finished quilt, from designer Paula Jeffery, is 34 1/2″ x 34 1/2″.
The pattern for “Embroidered Blocks Baby Quilt” is included in Weekend Scrap Quilting. There are several other patterns in the book that we think you’ll enjoy, too.
