Garden Gate begins!

January 2, 2014

Happy New Year Everyone!

Garden Gate begins today.  The “Getting Started” and January installments are ready to download.  If you choose to do machine embroidery, you’ll need to have a 150 x 150 embroidery capability.  We’re going to use lots of pretty threads for the applique, but we’re also going to use them to add decorative stitches from your machine to the pieced blocks.  I’ll be embellishing my January blocks over the weekend and I’ll post my results to give you some ideas.  If you don’t have an embroidery machine, or just feel like doing a bit of hand embroidery, please let your creativity run amok!

If you would like to post your results, I’ll set up a section in the forum for 2014 BOM results and we share our block results and get ideas from each other.

I’ve got to get back to work…I’m on deadline.

Happy Stitchin!
