A New Quilting Project

This is my current quilting project.  It is a baby quilt for a new grandniece.  The embroidery designs are Anita Goodesign Oodles of Doodles.  The fabric is 30s reproduction fabric and they are stippled using Anita Goodesign Foundations embroidery.  In keeping with my word for 2013 "frugal", all the fabric is from my stash.
I wanted to use the same color threads through the quilt so I selected a variety of thread colors prior to beginning the project.  I used my fabrics as a starting point for thread color.  All threads were in my thread stash.

When the quilt top is finished I will use a pink flannel backing and pink polka dot binding from my stash.  I'm hoping to use up much of my fabric stash this year.  It was a goal last year but it seems that I added more fabric than I used.  I'm hoping to do better this year.

I don't normally like embroidery on quilt blocks, but you've made this really cute! I love it!

Wow Pam, this quilt is the cats meow! I recognize a couple of those 30's reproduction fabrics, and I LOVE the embroidery blocks.

Good for you, using your stash. It's my goal this year, too...and to embroidery more now that my 10000 has come out of hibernation. Wonder if Oodles of Doodles will run on it. I'll have to check it out...thanks for the name of the designer.

You are off to a great start for 2013.

Hi Pam,
Hope you are doing well. :)
Pam, I am in love with those embroidered blocks. Did you do the stitching by hand or by machine?
Please let me know.
Hugs

Norma, The stitches are machine embroidery. Anita Goodesigns has a number of these that look like they are hand embroidery. Love them.

Lucky baby...this is charming! I love those 30's style fabrics and have a quilt made with them that I love to snuggle up with in the porch! Your quilt turned out beautifully!

Pam, that is beautiful!!! Can you tell me the name of the embroidery designs? I was having trouble finding them on her site. Thanks so much
