Oh, my goodness. I need a new project like I need another case of poison ivy. But my sewing friend Lillian is making a baby quilt for her new grandbaby, due in December and she invited friends to sew along. The pattern she chose is the perfect canvas for 5 machine embroidered blocks and I had some that I've been waiting to stitch, so...
I stitched the first block this morning. It stitched flawlessly! Whoever digitized this did a fabulous job. It is nicer than many sets I've purchased and it was FREE. That's a word self-control cannot resist! You can get this ME design and 7 others of vintage boys and girls on Sew Forum.
I also bought the basic Embird software recently and re-sized these designs to fit my 6x10 hoop. I'm pretty proud that I figured it out. Once I know how to use the basic Embird, I'd like to try the digitizing module.
Here are the repro 30s prints that I'll use for this little quilt.
