Embroidered Blocks




Dear sweet Mama Net has given me so many things quilt related. These are just a few of the blocks that she gave me. Last winter when I had to go and take care of my mom, Mama Net called me and told me not to bring anything to work on because she had some things that I could do. When I got there and went to see her I couldn't believe that she had these. Although she does have a lot of stuff and I mean a lot, hidden away. I was very excited about doing these so I started right away. She also has a 12 year supply of embroidery floss,LOL. I exaggerated there but she does have a lot of floss. Mama Net did start to embroider a couple of the blocks so they will be very special.



I have worked on these blocks on and off since she gave them to me. I think I had half of them done when I got back in March. I have the blocks soaking in some textile soap to soak all the excess grime off from handling them, then I will press them and think about the fabric I will use to put them together for one of my grandchildren.
And the whole set of blocks....... These blocks have got to be about 30 years old, Guess it was time they were done and put into a quilt.
