Alice in Wonderland Painting Book — Quilt Block #7

Here’s the latest block stitched from my old painting book published by Platt and Munk Co. It took a long time to complete this block because I’ve only been working on it sporadically.  I’m more than halfway done, with five more blocks to stitch, and I still have no idea how I’m going to put the blocks together. I think I’ll have to wait until they’re all done before I decide.

The blocks are 6″ x 9 3/4″ (the same size as the painting book pages), and the embroidery was done with stem stitch using one strand of DMC 498 floss on the same vintage sheet, even though the background colors in my photos all look a little different.

Here are the previously stitched blocks, and below that are all of the restored original pages which were in bad shape, most pages having been both painted and colored with crayon.
