Stitch Along Sampler
This is an 18-week series that explores the different aspects of embroidery and the stitches learned in the Embroidery Corner series. The design and stitching time for each square will be covered in two consecutive week intervals. This is a perfect project, as you can step into the session at the beginning of a square, and work your way through the project as your time allows. The finished project can become a wall hanging or pillow.
There will be 9 separate squares of fabric that will have an embroidered design on them. The embroidered designs will also include whole cloth, applique, ribbonwork and other aspects of embellished embroidery. The squares can be stitched onto a base fabric, or stitched together. The finished piece can be made into a pillow or a wall hanging. My book Embroidered and Embellished is a required supply.

The Finishing Hour $10.00
Whether you have made all nine square or just a few you have many options for finishing the project. The squares can be grouped with all nine blocks to make a wall hanging; or grouped together in fours for a smaller wall hanging or even a pillow. One square can be backed with a wide ribbon as hung an individual wall piece, or group several together for a longer section. The question is what will you do with your blocks?
