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.

These pieces of fabric were all cut from the same yardage and photographed in the same place on the same day... and yet, the colors always seem to vary from one photograph to the next. I can never figure out why! If you notice a difference in the colors, please be assured that they're all matching. It's just the picture colors that went wonky.
