Last Wednesday I tweaked my back. I am prone to this because I have degenerative disk disease in my spine – lucky me. Anyways, this means that there was no way I could sit at my machine and sew, especially since my sewing project currently consists of my mom’s super heavy purple quilt. So instead of sewing at my machine I busted out my favorite crazy block. I designed my very own embroidery design, turned it into an iron transfer and stitched it up. I have totally fallen in love!
Making your own iron on transfer is seriously easy if you have the right tools, I will do a tute for this at some point!
I am in love with where this block is headed. In case you are wondering what this is for and why I’m making it, I will tell you. It is for me, it will eventually be bound and will live in my sewing room as inspirational quilting art. I started this little project to learn some embroidery stitches before busting into my really nice stash of crazy quilting fabrics. So far I am really pleased but there is a lot more embellishment that I want to do.
You still have until Wednesday to link up for August’s goal party for A Lovely Year of Finishes, so make sure you get on that!
