CENTER BLOCK CREATED
AND I AM READY TO ASSEMBLE
I found a nice font to use for the lettering and made the letters with a brown pigma pen. I learned how to make this lettering colorfast from Pearl Pereira when I made her Pearl's Garden Quilt. I added my favorite Jacobean landscaping and choose flowers from Diana Lampe's great book Embroidery for all Seasons.
Now begins the assemblage. After much thought how how to keep 143 blocks in the correct order and placement prior to sewing together, I decided to use my micro stitch tool to hook the blocks together in each row. Then I will label each row so I know in which order to place the rows after they are sown together. This should work. We will see. Wish me luck. I should have something to show this Sunday. See you and until then:
