Hello, today is the next link up for the Gail Pan Patterns Sew-a-long hosted by Martina at Sunshine Quilting.
My project for March is not the project I originally said I was going to make when we linked up last month as, between now and then, Gail published a really sweet little free embroidery project on her blog as part of a blog hop she participated in. As it is called 'Welcome Spring' it is really appropriate for this month and, I just couldn't resist making it.
I used some beautiful Stef Francis variegated silk thread to stitch the embroidery. I added a border made with one of the fabrics from Gail's 'Baskets in Bloom' collection and stretched the finished block over a canvas to hang in my sewing room. When I added the border, I used mitred corners in an effort to reduce the fabric bulk when stretching/folding it over the canvas. I think it helped and, I am very pleased with the finished picture.
The 'One Red Flower' needle case will be my project for next month instead.
To see what everyone else has made in the Sew-a-long this month pop over to visit Martina.
