I've decided to tackle another USA quilt.
this time, instead of hand appliqueing each state, I want to embroider each state.
Interesting in joining me?
Find a map you like. I found mine from Mr. Printable. Import your map into Block Poster. Block Posters allows you to enlarge an image to poster size and print it out.
Tape the pages together, so it maintains its form.
Lay at least a yard of fabric over the map and pin it into place so it won't move.
Using a water soluable pen, trace the outline of each state and the state's name onto your fabric
And, then start embroidering.
I used a stem stitch for the names of the states and the gray border outlining the outside of each states lines. For the inside boarder of the states, I used a back stitch.
This is what I'll be doing during my spring break. What about you?
