Garden Steps {Block 10}


It is about time I finished up this embroidery quilt!  It amazes me how some things just end up on the back burner, and then are slow to regain priority.  But, I’m down to only two blocks…so my goal is to finish stitching them this month.


This one is block ten, and I really like the way the flowers turned out. If you look back to the original post, you can see the differences between mine and my mom’s stitch choice. I think one of my favorite things about embriodery is the way different stitches can make things that are similar unique.


I finished this block up while we were out of town for Christmas, so I thought I’d also show you the little change I made to my sewing kit {see the original post here, tutorial from Lot’s of Pink Here!}. I had a problem with my little tools slipping out all the time, so I simply sewed a little flap over them. No need for a closure, it just stays closed when folded and tied.  I have loved this sewing kit, and now it is even better.

I’m linking up to Sew Bittersweet Designs’ A Lovely Year of Finishes for January, in hopes that some peer pressure might help me actually accomplish my goal!  There’s still a day left to link up too…if you haven’t had a chance.

Have you noticed that there are tons of “finish works in progress” groups out there this year?  Maybe we’re all getting too bogged down with WIPs…!

    I love these blocks of yours. I don’t do hane embroidery but I do machine embroidery. Could you let me know the center size block and the size of the fabric around. They look like they are about 2 in. each. I would like to make something like this. Your blocks are very pretty. Thank you for sharing your lovely work. Judy

    So nice to see Block ten! I loved participating in your Garden Steps stitch along. I just got my quilt back from the longarmer before Christmas. All it needs is the binding! Love it! You and your Mom created such a fun quilt and stitch along! Your needlecase is cute too!

    I love your block, it looks great.
    I am up to block 7 and I’m so happy with how they are turning out.
    I love that each person has a differnet style so each quilt even though using the same pattern, fabrics and pearl cotton are still different..
    Thanks so much for organizing this quilt along.
