Time Began In A Garden, Center Panel

The center panel has been finished for about five days, and this morning -- I have a day off from work for Columbus Day! -- one of the items on my list of eight responsible things to do was to take a picture of that panel and get it posted here.

I had so much fun doing this panel. The directions indicated some minimal embroidery for the flowers; I really got into enhancing them and renewed my acquaintance with french knots, lazy daisies, and some other stitches.

The next step on this project will be to machine all of the thirteen blocks together and then oversew the seams by hand using decorative stitching.

It's wonderful! I need to get back to my Sporrer quilt, myself. I am 2/3 done with "By Wisdom A House Is A Built"... I do love it, but never seem to find the time anymore for the required handwork.

Wowee - that's fantastic! What is the name of that pattern? It looks like a wonderful gift for our retiring pastor. You've done a really nice job with that embroidery, it's so pretty!

It looks lovely. I always admire embroidery. I think I want to do it, begin and then rarely finish!

What a lovely center block. Can't wait to see the quilt put together. I have seen it done in all wool but I really like the background you are using.
