Embroidery Sampler

This sampler has been in the to-be-quilted cabinet since February 20, 2016.... only a bit over a year. 

I don't know what I will do with it, but i like it.  i guess you could make a quilt of just one type block, in different color ways, depending on what you like or for a holiday. it is 45x55".

You could make a child's quilt with the bear and hearts


A dog could get a bone quilt



The woodland creatures could make a guy quilt



The back was a piece of muslin. batting was warm and natural pieces left over from other quilts.

I am using up cones of thread. The top was done in Glide bright white. The bobbin used up 2 partial cones of off whites and some of a white...all in Bottom Line.  I don't like having cones of thread with just a bit on it. you're never sure if it is enough to finish a quilt, so i like these small quilts that i can use up those ends of cones.
