There is an old proverb stating that “the road to a friend’s house is never long”. This aphorism reminds me of the many friendships I’ve made over the years as a traveling quilt teacher. No matter where I go, my quilt friends are always welcoming and kind.
In celebration of those friendships, I came up with this design for my new book, Playful Free-Form Embroidery. A Friend’s House is embroidered on a wool background with felt shapes for the sheep and birdhouse. The free-standing stitched shapes like the bird, fence, and sun are made with thread alone. Complete directions are given in the book.
Please note that the giveaway closes on Thursday and I announce the winner on Friday. Meantime, please check out my online class, Little House in the Woods, and learn how to make this sweet little house design on the front cover of the book.
