I've been working along on my Blue and White project every day this week, and have almost finished surrounding the second of four embroidered blocks with their HST sashing.
Meanwhile I also finished up something I started awhile back - this sweet little embroidered quilter who's telling us, "When life gives you scraps, make quilts!" I found this free PDF pattern at a blog called The Painted Quilt.
After the embroidery was finished, I used some colored pencils to
fill in spots like her hair and her quilts that felt like they needed more color.
This was the perfect little project (Just 12.5 x 14.5) to use up some batting scraps - I fused them together with scraps of fusible interfacing!
A charm pack of Garden Variety by Lella Boutique seemed perfect for a border around the outside. I cut some of the squares into 2.5 inch pieces for the border, and used others for the backing.
After a little bit of simple quilting to hold the layers together, I bound it with a scrap of the dark blue floral from Garden Variety that is leftover from my Squared Away RSC 2018 sampler quilt.
