Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks Volume 5 Blog tour!

April 28, 2012

Hey everyone! Welcome! Wilkommen, Bienvenue, Anyeung He Casayo, Hola!

Are you as excited as I am to see what treats are in store in this new issue chock full of pattern goodness?

Without further ado, here is my fun block. I call it: “Lil’ Matryoshka”

Oh did I have fun with this one! As usual, it’s paper pieced, and all of the facial details are embroidered with a double strand. I designed their tummys to be a great spot to showcase your favorite prints, and I fussy cut some of my favorite elements from Spring Street from P&B textiles. I also used my favorite Quilter’s Linen and Kona by Robert Kaufmann.

Can’t you see the myriad of project possibilities with this one? *wink wink*

Let’s see, we have the Mommy:

….her teenaged daughter, who reminds me of my niece..

…and the little sister who is quite mischievous despite that innocent smile..

They were a lot of fun to make!

Now I thought I’d show you how I embroidered the faces…

There is this amazing stuff called Glad Press n’ Seal which you can stick and peel off of virtually anything several times. It’s perfect for tracing embroidery elements.

I love how you can so easily position it exactly where you need it.

I separated all the floss I used down to two strands.

And grabbed my trusty embroidery hoop..

I went with a simple back stitch to outline everything..

And a satin stitch (just over the outside of the outline, and just to the inside of the inner line) to fill in the lips..

And again I used a back stitch for the black smile line..

When you’re done, just gently tear away the press n’ seal. Sometimes I need to use some tweezers.

———————————————————-

So if you would love to win a copy of Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks Volume 5, leave me a comment below , make sure I have some way of contacting you! and I’ll choose a winner on May 3rd!  Comments are closed and the winner will be announced shortly!

Good luck! And enjoy the rest of the blog tour!

    This is such an awesome block – when Jennifer Ofenstein posted about her block (also on the cover!), I was immediately drawn to the Matryoshka dolls! SO cute. I don’t know where I’ll find this magazine (I live in Calgary, but I’ve never seen it anywhere around, although I don’t often look through the quilting magazines.. maybe Chapters), but I’m definitely going to have to get a hold of it.

    Can’t wait for Volume #5! I already know exactly what I’ll make with this block. My mother has a Matryoshka doll collection that she added to when my grandmother passed this Feb. I’m going to go buy some of that paper as well. I spent way too much time trying to pull paper pieces off of some baby cowgirl boots the other day after embroidering bluebonnets.

    Thank you for the great block and tutorial…this will make a great gift for my sister as a pillow – we both love Matryoshkas…but her collection is bigger than mine…I might have to work on that! I’d love to win the magazine to inspire her to do more quilting…my collection of fabric is definitely bigger than hers!
