Block 1 - Adding Texture

I love the swirls in the fabric on the bottom right of this block. I could not resist using embroidery to add textue to the piece. Using silk buttonhole twist, I stitched the outline stitch over every swirl printed on the piece. It took some time, but I am very pleased with the results.

Ah! My chocolate wrapper speaks wisdom again! Make "someday" today.

Your blocks are beautiful!!! I have added you to my daily blog hop!

You know, if you are already crazy quilting, a postcard requires only one more thing and that is peltex as a stabilizer or you can even use a thin card as your middle layer. =)

Just wanted to let you know that you don't have to buy that much more!
