‘Artistic Archetype’ Blog 28-Day Challenge: Day Three— Postage Stamp Block No. 3

Today I went with a light neutral color and a dark red DMC embroidery floss.

I kept the free-hand embroidery centered.

I learned an important lesson with the blue square with red DMC floss. I stayed away from the seam line, but allowed enough space for the seam fold. This block will not have that problem I encountered in Piece No. 2.

Here is Day Three: Postage Stamp Piece No. 3

1.5 inch (3.8 cm) square of 100% cotton fabric with dark red DMC embroidery floss while maintaining 1/4 inch (0.6 cm) seam allowance.


I also wanted to include the heart block I finished on Day 2.

P1050144 (640x612)

3-inch heart block allows a 1/4 inch (0.6 cm) seam. Finished block will be 2.5 inches square. White pattern fabric is leftover from another project. The blue floral fabric is from a scrap in the stash made up of fabric from several estate sales.
