What didn’t get in the book (but it means a freebie for you!)
Welcome to Day 4 of the Launch Party! When quilting turned into a fulltime job for me, I had to find a new hobby to fill in the evening hours and carpool downtimes. Because, let’s face it – as much as I love quilting, I do need a break from it occasionally! When I first proposed this book to my publisher, I had two or three embroidery projects in it as well. But like all endeavors, sometimes the best-laid plans just don’t work, and in the end and the embroidery was eliminated from the book. So today, I thought I’d show you two of the projects!
|And this is my favorite! It's only about 8" x 10" but it says it all doesn't it? The 1" finished pieced blocks on the left and bottom are the Broken Dishes pattern. (Get it?!) I was very funny that day!|
As a freebie to you, I have provided complete instructions for the "I don't do dishes" project. Click here to access the pattern. If you choose to make this project, please send me a photo of it. I'd love to see your work! Enjoy!
