Patchwork with Stitchery SAL: March

Hello! This week is the March link up for the 'Patchwork with Stitchery' sew-a-long hosted by Martina at Sunshine Quilting.  For this month's stitchery I decided to complete a block from a project that I started last year but didn't finish.




About this time last year a project called 'United Stitches' was launched by the designer Rosalie Dekker (Quinlan).  I wrote a blog post  which detailed Rosalie's idea behind the project and, I even stitched the first embroidery (shown above).  Unfortunately, I then got side-tracked with all sorts of other projects and didn't get any further than that!!



I had, however, bought a number of the little embroidery kits and I thought it would be nice to get them stitched.  So, for my project for the SAL this month, I stitched another of the designs.



I am not sure that I will stitch enough to make the 'United Stitches Quilt' pictured here but, I am hoping to make one of the alternative design suggestions which is a smaller wall quilt (the layout is shown below).



With that in mind, I chose some fabrics and made my two finished stitcheries into star blocks.



I am really pleased with them and I am looking forward to stitching some more over the coming weeks and months to add to them.



The stitcheries are very pretty designs and make a great little project to carry with you if you are waiting somewhere.  In fact, I finished the second of the two above while I was waiting for my car to be serviced earlier in the month!! 

Don't forget to pop across and see who else has linked up with Martina for the sew-a-long this month.
