Row 4 is finished! I knew Grandma's Embroidered blocks quilt would quilt fast but I'm speeding along faster than I anticipated.
Here are row 4's blocks.
I've had several questions about the circles I'm quilting in the embroidered blocks. I purchased the circle stencil several years ago at the One Stop Shop Hop in Kokomo, Indiana. The vendor was from Ohio but I have no idea where in Ohio.
The information on my stencil says BS177 Circle Echo, 12-1/2" - 32cm. Barbara Siedlecki by QCI, Inc. I googled Barbara's name and it took me to a website. I have no way of knowing if this is the same Barbara or not and I couldn't find any information about quilting stencils.
So I went to The Stencil Company and perused through their stencils. Under Modern stencils I found two circle stencils, a 10" and a 14". Scroll down to the Circles.
Some people asked if it was a spiral, no, I'm quilting a circle but if you scroll down farther, you will find 2 spiral stencils, again in 10" and 14" sizes. I've order the 14" one.
These are stencils I use in hand quilting, I don't know how they would work in machine quilting. They're a good quality plastic and last for years if taken care of. As you've seen, I hand mine on the wall.
