This block was sent out by Viv from the Cottage Quilting Bee and she was doing and Emily the Strange quilt. I added the polka dots on the outside of the block and the one around the Emily the strange picture. I love me some polka dots.
I decided to add a heart to the block after I heard Viv ask people to make a heart block if they did not have a picture. I did have a picture in my fabric scraps, but I still liked the idea of a heart so I tried out hand applique. I could not be happier with the turn-out, especially since it was my first time. It totally has a Nightmare Before Christmas feel to me.
Then the next block was sent out from Stephanie from the Pieced Together Quilting Bee. She sent us out an ABC block and wanted us to make a log cabin and if we wanted to embroider the ABC block we could. Well you know me, I love to embroider so I was up for the challenge. I added the white print with the green and pink circles,the green and pink plaid, and tiny bit of white to the block.
It turns out that I got the D block and that was a very funny coincidence. I used all 6 threads of the embroidery floss so that it would cover up the lines on the fabric, but you can still see some of the lines and I was super annoyed with that part, but I am happy with the end result.
Last, but not least, I joined a Doll Quilt swap over on Flickr. I am a little crazy, I know, but I can't help it, I love to sew.
