This project combines some hand embroidery with quilt squares. We did only 12 squares, (6 emroidered and 6 pieced squares) because we didn't want to repeat any of our embroidered designs... but you can make as many squares as you would like...
The quilt is a very simple format, so any novice quilter could put this one together... the actual quilting is the hardest part.
Step 1: Hot Iron Transfers and Embroidery
The first thing you need to do is find some hot iron transfers at the craft store...
THere are all kinds of hot iron transfers available through "Aunt Martha's". There are lots of animal and flower patterns, but there are a whole bunch of other cool designs.... so find a design that will inspire you. We chose a Scottish Terrier design, because that's what kind of dog we have... plus they were really cute!
The next thing you have to do is iron the transfers onto light-colored cotton squares, measuring 12.5" x 12.5".
Use embroidery floss in the colors that you like and embroider over the transfered lines. We decided to do our Scotty dogs in black and red.
