Encrusted Crazy Quilting 10
A few days ago I stitched the last embroidery stitches on my second class block. Now it was time to add backing fabric, batting and binding to my first block. This block is 8 x 8 inch and the fabric for the binding was 10 x 10 inch, so it was just enough! I used the same reddish linen fabric from the top right corner for the backing fabric and embroidered the label on it. It was a scrap from a dress from my youngest daughter. I enjoyed working on this block.I finished this block yesterday and today I started finishing the second block. I embroidered the label at the backing fabric and prepared the strips for the binding. I hope to finish this second one in the next few days. There’s a more detailed picture of my first block here.
