Crooked Brook Embroidery Blocks Giveaway!

Once again, Crooked Brook® has stepped up to the plate and is giving away another great quilter’s or sewing gift!

FREE EMBROIDERED BLOCKS!

If you saw my earlier post, I put photos of all of the blocks that they sent to me. 

Boy, was it tough to decide which set I was going to work with first! 🙂

After the kids and I ran through all of the stories of Little Red Riding Hood and Goldilocks and the Three Bears, we agreed that I’d make a quilted story book wall hanging out of the Little Red Riding Hood blocks.  That way, it could hang on a child’s wall and they could either read the story with their parents, or just lay in their bed and make up their own story to go with the pictures.  We’re big on imagination in our house!

First, I trimmed all of the blocks to 11″ unfinished.  Then, I added 2 1/2″ unfinished red sashing to the blocks and made my quilt sandwich:

Then, I took my own sweet time quilting the wall hanging – and let me tell you, I could NOT get the story of Little Red Riding Hood out of my mind the entire day!

And here’s my finished quilted story book wall hanging!

      I have never done an embroidered block. I would love to learn how to do them and to add them to a quilt. I have only been quilting for about a year and there is still so much to learn. I love it. I love all the different techniques to learn.

      Thank you
      Diane

      It has been along time since I embroidred, but I just found out my son is having their first child, so of course Grandma has to make a quilt and these blocks would be super in a baby quilt. Thanks

      I have always admired red work and wanted to do a quilt. I would make these squares into a pillow or if possible use them as a start for the quilt I always wanted to make

    4. Mary Mahan says:

      I love this redwork. I would make these into a small wallhanging for a little niece of mine.

    5. Frances Haddock says:

      It is so neat to see these done! I would love to have them for my granddaughters. Since I have such bad arthritis in my hands i can’t do as much needle work as I use to. This would be a neat alternative! I think putting them together as you did is a good idea.

      I would make a padded story book for my grandson. Thanks for the opportunity to win a fun project!

      I just redecorated my bathroom in 1930’s. The Red Riding Hood Re-print was my inspiration! I would use them as a wallhanging in the bathroom close to the Red Ridinghood print!
      thanks and love your site!

      I am reading/storytelling with my granddaughters when they come over. Well, not so much reading as they are storytelling. Most of the time, they prefer their own version, so the story gets a new twist. We do this in my “grandma cave” (quilt rooms), and they lay out a quilt from my stash as they rewrite the old nursery rhymes/childrens’ stories. So far, I haven’t been brave enough to sew together their creations, but with the story blocks…..I can see beautiful things come together! These blocks are inspirational!

    9. Mary Beth Ticknor says:

      I would make them into a story book for my 1 year old granddaughter to read and love.

    10. Lyn says:

      “Aren’t those cute!! I think they’d make a lovely dresser runner for my 18mo granddaughter!

    11. Becca says:

      I would make place mats with a twist. A twisted sq in sq and use yo~yo’s around the outside nice and brite for summer fun

      the blocks are beautiful!! it would be an honor to have them and incorporate them into a wall quilt!! i’ve never had that opportunity before, so would love to give it a try.
