I only have a few embroidered quilts.
This one has a woman in a large hat on one block and lilly pad on the other. I find it interesting to see that the embroidery was done through the thin batting and the backing so it is part of the quilting.
I have a small doll quilt from the same time period that uses this technique as well.
I like how she squeezed the I and J into one blck and shrunk the Q into a little block so the alphabet would fit in the 9-patches!
I have used this quilt as inspiration for a couple of doll and baby quilts.
The embroidery floss was easier to "quilt:" with than I expected
however the stitches are a bit larger and my hand does tire quicker than when using quilting thread. Also I wish I had used a darker shade of thread on this piece. There is less thread on the fabric using this stitch this light blue just doesn't hold its own...lesson learned!
