These two embroidered blocks are part 11 of a series of blocks that can be used alone or as part of a quilt that will have a total of 25 blocks. These blocks would be sweet framed individually and hung in a nursery. The Lord truly is our shepherd and reminding our little ones of that can be a real comfort to them.
Embroidering scripture is a great way to commit it to memory. Each block works up quickly and can be saved for the full quilt or used alone as a reminder of God’s promises.
The full materials list for the quilt can be found on my blog. The following list of supplies is only for these two blocks.
- 8 1/2” square of two background fabrics (the photo below shows the contrast between my two fabrics). **Please Note: I cut the fabric to the exact size needed for the quilt. I do not cut my background fabric larger then trim it down after stitching. If you are used to working with a larger piece of fabric and prefer to trim it then you will need to cut your fabric larger.**
- Light box and micron Pigma pen in brown or grey
- DMC floss (this is the list of colors I used but I encourage you to choose colors to match your fabrics if you are stitching along and making the quilt): ecru, 224, 422, 902, 3022, 3052, 3821
- Prismacolor pencil #935 (black), 937 (tuscan red), 938 (white), 942 (yellow ochre), 988 (marine green), 1005 (lime peel), 1018 (pink rose), 1082 (chocolate), 1092 (nectar) (or colors to match your chosen fabrics)
- Jacquard Colorless Extender #100, 1/2” paintbrush and Artist’s kneadable eraser
- Small embroidery scissors
- Iron and pressing surface
