I'm thrilled to have an embroidery machine but the investment it required was uncomfortably large... so I need to let that great toy earn its keep! I love the process of making quilt blocks, so I thought they would be a good item to add to my etsy store. I hope others will enjoy using these blocks in their sewing projects as much as I enjoyed making them. The fabric is always washed, dried, and ironed before I cut the blocks. I do my best to make sure that the fabric is carefully squared before I cut each block. Please be aware that the process of hooping and embroidering can pull the fabric out of true, however, so the finished blocks may no longer be a perfect square.

The light kept changing while I was taking pictures as clouds crossed in front of the sun. The fabric came out looking like slightly different colors in the pictures, but it's all the same piece of faux suede!
