An embroidered quilt label tutorial from Pen to Thread

RST is thrilled to welcome Cloud 9 fabric designer and illustrator Sarah Watson back today for a guest post! Sarah has just released her book, Pen to Thread (Interweave Press), with more than 750 hand-drawn embroidery designs and instructions on how to create your own stitchy projects. Here’s Sarah, with a fun tutorial for the quilting crowd!

Hello there! It’s me, Sarah Watson, coming to you with a fun embroidery tutorial, plus free motif from my new hand embroidery book, Pen to Thread. The book is chock full of fun, imaginative, sophisticated, masculine, and silly motifs. Something for everyone, really!

I love embroidery because it is a simple hobby that, with little practice and a few materials, can yield wonderful, lasting results. If you use high-quality materials, your embroidery can be passed from generation to generation. Because you lovely readers at Right Sides Together are mostly quilters, the project I’ve prepared for you today is a quilt label (good idea, huh?).
