Dutch Canal House Embroidery - August Update (Having Too Much Fun!)

Dutch Canal Houses embroidery

Dutch Canal Houses! Great progress is being made!

I didn't plan it this way, but the table runner is becoming an opportunity to learn new stitches as I look for ways to create interest and texture.

My strategy? Simply to page through two of my most favorite stitch references until a stitch jumps out at me! Most times the stitch itself will suggest where it is best to be used!

Work in Progress - Tidal Pool Quilt Block

Tidal Pool Quilt block

I do not consider myself a quilter - and yet it is funny how many quilt projects I end up making!

Thought I would share my little tidal pool pillow top or table topper or wall hanging - it's final purpose is yet undecided!

Actually, I created this little block about a year ago. Once the yoyos were pinned in place, I set it aside to focus on Dala and that was that!

First Winter Holiday Quilt Block

Holiday Quilt Blocks

"Welcome to the North Pole: Santa's Village in Applique" by Becky Goldsmith and Linda Jenkins - Piece O' Cake Designs.

When I first saw a completed quilt based on the designs offered in this book, I wanted very much to make one just like it. I was completely enchanted by the playful little houses and tipsy trees.
