More Salem Quilt Guild Witches to Stitch

Last week in my most I mentioned I purchased the newest Salem Quilt Guild pattern from Crabapple Hill Studio, well during the week I purchased some of the new fabrics and a panel from Maywood Studio that coordinate with the Show and Tell embroidery pattern.

The pieces are so bright and cheerful I just couldn't resist them I purchased a few other pieces but they haven't arrived yet.

I haven't made as much progress on the Aine hand embroidery piece as I had hoped but a few stitches are better than none.
I have a few regrets adding backing to the piece and using the pearl cotton while it stitches okay sticking the needle through the fabric is a bit harder than I expected which surprises me since the backing fabric is quite thin. Right now I am debated pulling out all the thread and either removing the backing of using regular embroidery floss or just keep on stitching.

In the mean time I have another project drawn and ready here is a little sneak peek at what I will be working on next.
I'm using a piece of the neutral paisley fabric I love so much for this piece. I will be linking my post to Kathy's Quilts today and at Super Mom No Cape on Monday.


  1. those witches look to be an interesting project!

  2. What fun fabrics to go with a neat stitching project! Good luck with your decision on the pearl cotton. That is always a tough one.

  3. Those Salem Quilt Guild witches are pretty adorable. It will be a fun project to work on. Happy stitching! Andrea

  4. You have some great projects in the works. I love that geometric embroidery.
