Today I’m back with a bonus project that goes along with the Summertime Sampler Block-of-the-Month quilts — an embroidered dresser scarf!
Before I get into that, however, another correction needs to be made to the booklet — yikes! I pride myself on not having mistakes in my patterns, but I guess pride goeth before a fall — I seem to be losing my touch in my old age! (This was a tough pattern to write, for someone with an addled brain — haha!)
The correction is on page 6, in the second column, under “For Plain Filler Sections 4A and 4B”:
The rectangles are supposed to be 2 1/2″ x 4 1/2″, (not 6 1/2″).
So if you’ve already cut them, just cut them down a bit smaller, and everything else should work out fine as written. Thanks to Cathy and Christie for finding this and helping me figure it out!
Also, I’d like to point out that I’ve added a category to the Categories pop-up menu in the sidebar at right that has all the posts that go along with the Summertime Sampler Block-of-the-Month. All the extra tutorials, articles, corrections (there are 2), and bonus projects can be found there in one handy place. Simply select Summertime Sampler from the Categories pop-up menu, and it will filter out all the posts related to the Summertime Sampler quilts!
And now on to the bonus project!
A while back, I had designed an embroidery pattern, and not done anything with it. As I was designing the traditional version of the Summertime Sampler quilt, I had the light bulb moment that adapting this embroidery design for the appliqué sections would be a great idea!
But I still wanted to see it done in embroidery, so I decided to do it as a bonus project to go along with the Block-of-the-Month. So here it is:
I used the same color scheme as the quilt, and even one of the same prints found in the quilt as my backing, and embroidered the design onto a natural-colored linen blend fabric.
The pattern for the dresser scarf can be found in my Etsy Shop: Summertime Dresser Scarf Embroidery pattern. It’s available in PDF format only.
I also have one kit available. The kit includes the fabric and embroidery floss to make the dresser scarf exactly as shown here (the pattern needs to be purchased separately, since it’s a download). But there’s only one, so if you want it, don’t delay!
