Beautiful Quilty Stitches!

Almost one year ago I posted here about a project that was finished, well, almost. The stitch-along started early 2014 with Corey Yoder from Coriander Quilts  as the driving force. I joined sometime during spring 2014, and got hooked right away.

Who would have known that cross stitching tiny quilt blocks could be so addictive? The time in between posting of new blocks were often way too long!

Corey did a great job in transforming the well known quilt blocks into miniatures measuring approx. 2" square, each.

In March last year I had finished stitching all the 16 mini blocks, and not to mention filled in the background with white DMC. Then the piece was just lying around, waiting to be put into a frame and hung up on my wall.

Finally, early this year I handed in the embroidery to be professionally framed. It is a piece of art, and deserves to be treated as such!



My Quilty Stitches, framed in all its glory! I really enjoyed the relaxing process of cross stitching, and it was so much fun going through my drawers picking out embroidery floss for the different blocks. Basically, all the embroidery floss came from my stash. The only thing I needed more of, was the white background filler.

I am very pleased with the result of the framing. The Quilty Stitches is brightening up my wall, and will be cherished for many years to come!

Keep on stitching!
