Flip it Blocks - All Done!


I started stitching one block a month on this piece back in January, and today, I finished it! This is the Lizzie Kate Flip-It Blocks from a few years ago. I saw Teresa Dorn's finished piece awhile back, and it just called to me to stitch it myself.

126 hours of stitching later - Ta Da! All done!

This is stitched on 28 count evenweave that is very much like a Rustico fabric. I purchased it at Hobby Lobby off the bolt a few years ago, and wish I would have bought more of it! Hobby Lobby doesn't carry it anymore and I haven't been able to get it anywhere!

I used Weeks Dye Works and Gentle Arts Sampler Threads on this piece. The finished size is 10 1/2 by 13, and I don't know how I will "finish" it.

It's gorgeous!! And I know exactly what fabric you're talking about! I got about 5 yards from Hobby Lobby awhile back before they discontinued it.
