Nursery Rhyme Blocks — Now Quilt Top

3 11 2012

Sometime ago, I showed my oldest UFO;  Nursery Rhyme blocks I had started embroidering with my Grandmother when I was around 12.  This summer I took them to our quilt groups mini retreat at Andrea’s house and they came back a quilt top.

I got the idea to set them with these blocks from an Electric Quilt Tutorial.  I made the mistake of not measuring all the embroidered blocks before I cut all the star pieces.  It turned out Bo Peep need to be cut larger than all the other blocks.  I had all those star blocks cut out and did want to waste the fabric or the time.  Which resulted in the spacers between each block.  Perhaps it was serendipity, I like how the stars sort of float.

It’s still a UFO, but I’m one step closer to finished.
