Embroidery 101: Finished Quilt


It's finally done!  I wasn't sure way back in May when I started this quilt that I'd ever actually finish it!  But all the wonderful participants of the Embroidery 101: Stitch & Quilt Along kept me going, and now I have one of my favorite quilts ever! {And, if you missed out on it the first time around, the tutorials and patterns are still available here!}

Along with everyone else, I learned a lot through making this quilt. Each block was not only an adventure in stitching, but also in drawing and designing, things I'd never really done a lot of. I really feel like I grew with each block.

But instead of saying too much, I'll let the quilt do the talking this time. Here are a few of my favorite blocks, though it's really hard to narrow it down...

And, because this quilt is really special to me, I'm entering it in the Blogger's Quilt Festival hosted by Amy from Amy's Creative Side.


If you're not familiar with the festival, you should head over and look at some of the amazing quilts! And if you're visiting from the festival, thank you! I hope you find something here you enjoy.
