Not So Finished Projects
Here's a closeup of one of the blocks:
I hand embroidered these blocks using patterns from a dishcloth pack from Aunt Martha's Embroidery Patterns, an awesome source for all things kitchy and retro. I was (and still am) a big fan of redwork (embroidery done all in one shade of red) so that's what I went with for this quilt. The fabric for the sewn blocks is from a collection of reproduction feed sack prints, perfect for the hillbilly theme! I really do love this top, it's fun and silly which I of course love, so I really need to find the perfect fabric for the border and get this thing done!
