A little peek

Since I can't show the QOV blocks just yet, I started another project using some fabric I was "paid" with for a favor I did.   I added some mirage fabrics for the small squares.  I am not sure I am happy with them for this. I would like the pattern to POP a bit more.  The mirage blenders seem to get lost in with these bright strips.
Here is the first two blocks I made and joined.  Joining the two makes the full pattern.  This is adapted from a pattern so I will not be showing 'how to' on this one.

I have also made lots of bookmarks.  I am planning to put some in my Etsy shop - which at this moment is empty.
Here are a few of the bookmarks:
 


The white angel one just doesn't photograph well.  I suppose I will leave it out of the shop.
I hope you are having a pleasant and creative day!

Try laying the bookmark on the cover instead of the pages and it will photograph better. I have some patterns for bookmarks too. Maybe I should fire up the machine today....

Looking forward to seeing your QOV. These blocks don't look bad, Gene, but I can see what you're talking about. And your bookmarks are beautiful. I LOVE the angel. Try laying it on a piece of colored paper or solid color fabric...I bet it would show up much better for your photos...it would be a shame for you not to put it in your shop!

XOXO,

Cyndi

I love those bookmarks. So pretty and you can see every little detail. They sure stitch up better than the smaller 4x4 version.

Your bookmarks make me swoon for an embroidery machine but you already know that :) I love the quilt blocks! They are beautiful!

I LOVE that purple bookmark!!! They are all sooooo pretty!!! When I get past just embroidering names with my embroidery machine, I'll have to learn how to make these beautiful bookmarks!!!
