yesterday while lying back, my eyes closed i wondered... what would be a good project? the kind of project to do while it rained like crazy and could allow me to feel like i was doing something. it all came to me in about 30 seconds.
i haven't participated in whiplash for a while, i have a never ending love of all things embroidered and all things felt, i have been wanting to use circles of felt for something, and i am currently wanting to edge everything thing i can get my hands in in a picot stitch.
i present to you - 'embroidered alphabet on felt - a mini quilt'.
it measures 10 3/8" wide by 11 7/8" long and each embroidered circle is 1 3/8" in diameter.
this one went pretty quickly too, but it was a holiday weekend, with not too many plans...
i first embroidered each letter on a circular piece of felt (i have a die cutter, i did not cut these by hand...) then doubled the thickness and stitched the two circles to it's neighbor with a couple of longer stitches that i then wrapped in a buttonhole stitch. once done i used the same method to attach the alphabet to a border i had finished with a blanket stitch.
it is always nice to get a project completed quickly and have it work like i expected, as you all know, they don't always happen that way.
