Here is my second attempt at a Mother Goose quilt block from the book I posted on the 9th. I’m pleased with the way this turned out. The black embroidery outline is nice, I think, but you can’t travel much on the back because the floss shows through the lighter areas. It requires lots of tying off, but I’m happy with the colors and it doesn’t feel stiff. I am using Crayola crayons to color the blocks, and I’ll post more as I get them colored and stitched.
Jack and Jill went up the hill
To fetch a pail of water;
Jack fell down and broke his crown
And Jill came tumbling after.
