Busy Little Ladies

Here is a little wallhanging with some "Days of the Week" stitcheries that I did sometime ago. When I quilted it, I didn't do the actual embroidered blocks because that was at the very beginning of my trying to machine quilt. The blocks were all puffy and I was disappointed in the way it looked. After quilting the little blue work hangings, I got this one out and decided to go ahead and quilt it.
I think it looks much better and is not so poufy. I suppose some people probably don't want to quilt the embroidery, but I think it looks fine. At our quilt show last spring, there were some really nice quilts that had the embroidered blocks quilted and they were lovely.

These little girls are working sooooo hard. A woman's work is never done. Except maybe on Sunday, the middle block in the hanging above. (Click to enlarge)

Carol - very sweet - I don't think the quilting detracts at all! J

I have just started to do machine stippling on a large quilt and so far so good. I love your stitchery quilt done too and think it has turned out really lovely. I love the colours and of course your stitcheries are beautiful!!I would love to come and spend a week with you to look at all your wonderful quilts and things :) Just beautiful!!

Lovely! The fabric and stitchery blend so nicely together. I really like the way you quilted it. It doesn't take away from the stitchery at all.

The quilt not only looks ok, it looks great. I really like the quilting over the embroidery. It gives their dresses and finished look. Glad you finished it. Back from "moving day". Janet
