What’s the theme? Poinsettias!

This was an impromptu embroidery design purchase; I didn’t even know I needed another project! And one with a deadline…..sigh…

Sweet Pea Machine Embroidery Designs carries beautiful machine embroidery designs and the temptation is always there to click on the ‘buy now’ button; it’s so darn easy! Well, as a way to entice the customer, they hold a monthly sew along and discount a design for that sew along. This was October’s sew along and poinsettias were on my mind as I was just quilting one (my previous blog post) so I was hooked. I didn’t leave myself much time; I just finished the poinsettia wall quilt on the 19th. It took a long time and a lot of thread to stitch this; I think I used six bobbins! I finished yesterday and submitted it to their Facebook page; I even beat their deadline by one day! The design is Poinsettia Blocks/Quilt, in case you’d like to get yours too.

This is a small table runner measuring about 12.5″ x 26″. The poinsettia is available in sizes 4″ x 4″, 5″ x 5″, 6″ x 6″, 7″ x 7″ and 150cm x 150cm; I used the largest one – 7″ x 7″ and a variety of Sulky rayon, metallic and holoshimmer threads. I used one layer of wrap n zap batting; perfectly good for this project. All the fabrics and threads came from my stash. If I’d had more time I would have made a longer one. Maybe for next Christmas….lol.
