I just completed BOM #3 in Jacquelynne Steves’ Sew Sweet Simplicity series.
I’m using vintage bluebird patterns to embroider the center block for these 12-inch finished blocks. I’m using coordinating scraps for the block itself but each one will be a little bit different.
The blocks will be turned into some kind of project for the kitchen. The block is not difficult to piece, yet gives some very pretty results.

It really is two projects in one! The embroidery is beautiful. Love the little birds. I also love your fabrics…I spy a couple of spools and buttons!
These are adorable, does the embroidery take much time?
These are very simple patterns. I’d say there are 3-4 hours of embroidery time in each.
These are so sweet! I love vintage pieces – the birds are wonderful!
Love this header, too. That is the prettiest block so far. I love the fabrics and the stitchery and how they go together. What a wonderful something for the kitchen this will be!
How sweet, will they go into a quilt?
Just check your link to embroidery pattern, anything you could imagine is there.
I am truly enjoying watching this each post. In fact, it reminds me of when I would visit Nana and she would show me her progress on a particular quilt or afghan or something else she was sewing…………thanks for that – I look forward to the next post!
Just Darling, Lillian! I can’t wait to see what you make with all the blocks, when completed.
Beautiful! I also can’t wait to see the finish product.
Lillian…this is just beautiful! Thank you for sharing the link. This is going to be my next blocks and make them as a table runner… :0) mari
It looks so lovely and the colours of the fabrics match so good with your embroidery! Happy stitching & Dutch greetings, Carolien
It’s amazing! You do beautiful work!
