german stitchery

I finished my heart embroidery and framed it with some Amy Butler fabric from my stash.  I am not sure how large I will make it, but I plan to keep adding more sashing in a log cabin style.  I used Valdani brown variegated thread on off white cotton fabric.  The darling pattern called Snow Hearts came from a German blog called All About My Quiltshop Kaleidoskop.  It is an interesting blog and there is a translation button that translates the German to English!

My embroidery skills aren't that great...I can't even make a french knot...but I still enjoy a little handwork now and then : )

I am entering this block at Quilt Story's Block Party as a Traditional Embroidery quilt block.  This is a fun contest with some gorgeous blocks....go have a look!

I think you're embroidery work is amazing! It looks beautiful and the AB fabric is a great choice for the border!
