I actually – finally – finished this 2 days ago but wasn’t online long enough to write about it. I started to put French knots in the center of the small flowers but decided I liked the satin stitch better for that small area so I switched for the remainder.
I counted the number of blocks that have embroidery in them and in 60 blocks there were 6 that had either a little or a lot. Does that mean there are 3 more embroidery blocks left? I haven’t counted the appliqued, paper pieced, and regular patchwork blocks.
On an unrelated note, on Fons & Porter this morning they were making a string quilt. Normally that would be paper pieced but the guest uses a permanent stabilizer that stays in. I’ve used the Sulky stabilizer that washes out but this got me intrigued – do they sell a permanent stabilizer in 8.5″ x 11″ where other paper pieced patterns could be run through the printer and leave the stabilizer in? I haven’t found it if so, but that would be great to not tear off all the paper!
