I've been wanting to offer a B.O.M. on my blog for a while but couldn't decide on a project. I thought applique might be too limiting, as it's not everybody's favorite technique, so I've decided to design a quilt with 12 months of embroidered blocks. I've always been drawn to vintage illustrations and thanks to my Mom and Aunt have a collection of old cards and postcards which I'm using for my inspiration. I'm calling the design "Sweet Nostalgia" and am planning to have it start sometime in September, probably around the 15th.
I'd like to thank Nireko and the Lecien Corporation http://www.lecien.co.jp/en/hobby/cosmo25/index.html for so generously providing these luscious Cosmo embroidery threads for the project. They arrived today and I've got the first block ready to start stitching! I think I've got my mojo back! lol
