Autumn House - Block 1

Yay! I finished!

Autumn House Block 1
I'm really happy with how this turned out, especially considering my very limited embroidery experience. Before I started stitching on the block, I practiced my stem stitch using Judith Baker Montano's instructions in Elegant Stitches as a guide. I'm glad I took the time to practice, because I think it made a big difference.

Now I anxiously await block 2!


  1. I love that block!

    I need to get that book. TODAY!

  2. Cute! Your embroidery is wonderful.

  3. How cute! I love the flying geese fabric in the windows.

  4. Well I love houses. This is darling. So so so cute!

  5. Beautiful block! This is going to be a very nice quilt. I love anything to do with the Autumn.
