Embroidered Bird Blocks


I came across this little stack of 5" machine-embroidered blocks yesterday and put them together into a small wall hanging today, using a variety from the supply of hand-dyed fabrics. I'm getting addicted to those fabrics, they are sooooo attractive and feel so nice to the touch. I stitched the blocks out a few years ago, when I first got my Designer 1 and was roaming all over the internet looking for free digitized designs. Can you believe these lovely designs were free?

That is such a sweet quilt! Love the softness of the colors! I really need to make myself sit down at my embroidery machine and MAKE myself use it LOL! When I don't use it for a while, I forget so much.

Very nice quilt. I like using free embroidery patterns off the internet. Looks like you are keeping busy.

Those blocks are so darling! I am glad you are finding a way to use them. Now you can display them and enjoy them.

I love your wll hanging. What a great way to use up fabrics and blocks. I agree with you, I love the feel of hand dyed fabrics. Almost too much to use them.

Isn't it fun to come across old projects and be immediately inspired to finish them up! Great job!
