Giant steaming cup of mocha and my block ready to stitch!
Please note, if you're going to strip piece, like I did, it's important to edge stitch 1/8" around the entire block.Otherwise, your seams may come apart since you're going to be handling the block quite a bit to do the embroidery. There are 5 of us getting together to do these quilts and we're each doing it a little bit differently. So, definitely do what works for you!
If you'd like to join in this Block of the Month, it's not too late. You can get all the details at Little Birdie Stitches and see everyone's progress on the Flickr group. I can't wait to see what the February block is like! I'm hoping there will be hearts involved. Love birds maybe?
