WIP Wednesday

This week I put some of my embroidery test designs to use.
Welcome to The Coop
I put four cute chicken coop designs together vertically.
Added batting/backing and quilted it with a criss cross pattern and a few bird tracks.

Then added a bias tape binding , some velcro squares to the back (stick on type).
And hung it to the outside of the house near my front door.

We are painting the front porch this fall so I'll just have to unstick the velcro and paint, then restick it on.
Fun quick project finished in an afternoon. : )
I also finished up my kitty apron design with matching pot holders.
And then tested out a few more embroidery designs.

Lastly I cut out my final set of thorns for my Heart's Desire blocks.
I hope to have my last set of blocks almost finished by this time next week.
Will post updated photo's then.


  1. A-dorable chickens! Love the way you mixed the different ginghams. The kitties are pretty darn irresistable too, and the birdies so sweet. Looks like you are having a good time with fabric and thread at your place!

  2. I love the cats. The rest of the embroidery patterns are lovely too.

  3. Cute blocks! I have a serious case of embroidery envy now!!
