Embroidery


I received another wonderful donation from Crooked Brook today. They sent me a bunch of embroidery blocks to use in my quilts. Some of the blocks are 6 inch and some are 12 inch, white,100 % cotton gabardine fabric and the embroidery work is beautiful. Here is a picture of the praying hands embroidery blocks, both with and without the Bible verse.

Now here is a picture of the flower blocks they embroidered for me. I think these are so pretty and perfect for this time of year!

I feel as though these blocks will be a great addition to my quilting plans. I could use a number of them together to make the pattern of the quilt or wall hanging.  Another option would be to showcase one or two as the central point with other pieced blocks surrounding it. Oh, another idea would be to take a few of them, add some pieced blocks and make a tote bag. Wouldn’t that be great?

Not only has Crooked Brook been extremely generous with Central Ohio Binky Patrol, but they are very easy to work with as well. I highly recommend you visiting their website and trying out some of these embroidery blocks. There is a wide variety of coloring of thread colors, fonts, stock and custom embroidery designs to choose from, plus you can have your own design or logo digitized .Your wish is their command! Not to mention, the quality of work is very high. Contact Crooked Brook for custom embroidered, shirts, polo shirts, sweatshirts, hoodies, jeans, patches, hats, fleece jackets, fleece blankets , tote bagsaprons, sweatshirt blankets, buttons, fabric, t-shirts and custom t-shirts.

Bye,

I use pieces like this on the back of my quilts. I rarely make a solid back quilt...I like to piece with my leftover fabrics something simple and throw one of these type blocks in - which I've usually had done as a signature block. I'll have to check out the sponsor.
