This week’s assignment:
The dog days of summer are well under way! It’s the perfect time to stay out of the heat and spend a little extra time in your sewing room! Tell us about the embroidery project you are currently working on (or are about to start). Post your comment for a chance to win a $25 shopping spree to the Designs in Machine Embroidery website.
The winners of last week’s assignment answered the following question:
What colors would you choose if you were designing your own Stipple Bridge Club quilt? One lucky winner will be randomly chosen to win a Stipple Bridge Club!
The winner is:
“I would use a pale yellow or peach for the background of the blocks with purple thread for the background. I would also use purple fabric for the setting triangles. I would use a multicolored print with these colors for the hearts, clubs, spades and diamonds.”
