Embroidery Blocks

I realized that I hadn’t posted a lot about the blocks that I received from Hip 2 Bee Square for my month.  It has been a little while since I received them but a recent project I am working on reminded me to share them.
For my month, I sent everyone an embroidered square to be featured in the center of the block as well as a selection of April Cornell fabrics and some textured solids.  The embroidery squares were all of my own designs–they started out like this:
And became these:
Which turned into these little packets that I sent out:
And turned into all of these lovely blocks that I got back:
Which are now ready to be turned into a lovely quilt.

    My friend is having a baby, so I wanted to make her something that shows how special she is and her new little one will be. Heirloom-y and modern still. I love the mix of handstitching and machined and tidy squares.

    I'm super inspired!
