BLOG HOP! Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks Volume 10

Welcome to Blueberry Backroads!

I'm Sara, and I'm thrilled to have my block chosen to appear in Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks Volume 10. Embroidery is my game, and I hope you love it too!

Scroll to the bottom to learn about THREE WAYS TO WIN your free issue of Volume 10!

Here's my block - Winter Red -
I was inspired to design this block by the beautiful variegated grey embroidery floss. This past year I've been experimenting with different brands and colors of floss, and I've fallen in love with the variegateds!

I like to use a water-erasable fabric pen to trace out my patterns. That way I can make mistakes, go outside the lines, play with the look, and it all disappears with the dab of a damp cloth when I'm done.

Chain-stitching is the name of the game!

Now for your chance to win...
Leave a comment on this post, and you'll be entered to win a free issue of Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks Vol. 10. I'd love to hear what your favorite embroidery floss is, but any and all comments are welcome!
