I loved making this block! It was so fun and it totally reflected my entire week. I spent a lot of time working on a quilt I won't be able to show you for a while.
I have decided that I am going to change some of my "rules". Instead of it being my entire week in 1 block (that is only 6 inches), I am going to pick out 1 thing in my week to highlight. I don't want them all cluttered looking. I think I am not going to hand embroider on them, it feels too heavy to me, now that I have a few made I can see that, but will occassionally use some machine embroidery.
The cutting mat was a fun touch that I had not thought of until the very end. I found a piece of fabric that was very similar in color, stitched some lines on it, covered it with Fray Check, let it dry and then cut out my mat. I know my perspective is not totally right but that is not something I am very good at doing. Just look at the size of my pincushion compared to tthe mat!
Here is some Show and Tell from my guild, Penn Oaks last night.
