Kathy Schmitz Embroidery Blocks

Years ago I bought a fabric panel designed by Kathy Schmitz. It's called A Stitcher's Garden. I thought I would embroider over the printed designs and use them as quilt block centers. I also bought two jelly rolls in the same line that I would use to make sashing,  a pieced border, etc. I didn't really have a plan in mind, except that I loved the blocks on the panel and wanted to use them in a quilt. But, as usual with my plans, I never got around to doing the stitchery---no big surprise there! 

But, all is not lost. Monica is my friend Pam's mom. She loves to do stitchery and loves to have a project to work on at all times. I mailed her my panel blocks and she stitched them up and had them back to me in the blink of an eye. Her stitches are gorgeous and perfect. Now when I have the time to make these blocks, my centers are ready to go :) 

Here are the six blocks she stitched. Aren't they delicious?

Thanks, Monica! Your work is spectacular!

Happy Stitching,

  1. Now that's a good friend! I remember seeing those fabric designs. Good idea to stitch over the printed lines.
