Embroidered Quilts

I love the bright colored fabric and thread, the gorgeous and varied stitches are artwork on their own!! Must make this! (sue spargo)

I ❤ embroidery . . . Free patterns: Embroidered quilt blocks. Shelly of The Life of Hazel Ilene is sharing an embroidery quilt-along one block at a time. She says, For these blocks, there’s a plain version, and a fancy version. Which you do just depends on how much you like embroidery, how involved you want to get with it, and how comfortable you are with various stitches.

    I actually found a lot at estate sales. There is a sight called Estatesales.net. You type in your zip code ... You'd be amazed if you're into it! You get to know who puts them on, they get to know you and the deals are amazing!

    what a great idea, you can find so many beautiful discarded embroidered pieces in second hand stores.

    I have vintage hankies that I want to make a quilt out of. This gives me a great idea, I could do some small embroidery around some of the ones that look too "flat" to spice things up!!

A book quilt :D This actually looks fairly easy to sew! You could embroider the names of books on the bindings.... The Scarlet Pimpernel, Pride and Prejudice, Anne of Green Gables, Nancy Drew, Tale of Two Cities...I would LOVE something like this!! Perfect for my book reading chair :)

    I have been searching for something unique for my granddaughter who is addictied to reading, has been since she was 5 (20). I have been staring at it and I think it is doable and I can use all the pieces I have left from other projects. So excited!

    I'd love one, too!!!

Embroidered Patchwork, I like this idea, but they still had to do everything to make a quilt, plus all the stitch work. Looks cool though.

Quilt labels. Gonna make a few myself. They are all hand or machine embroidered.

4" Midget sampler blocks. Pattern download for each block. Blocks are small enough that you could make one every so often. Great way to learn new techniques too!
