"The Lord's Prayer" is made up of 26 free embroideries shared over 26 weeks, all coming together as a simply pieced elegant wall quilt in December.
The first block will be shared here on the blog this coming Monday, June 8th, and a new block every Monday after that until early December when we complete the quilt.
I have a special Grab Button over there in my side bar that you can add to your own blog if you like, and please feel free to share the news of this 'permanently free' Lord's Prayer Stitch-along in all your social media, such as your blog, Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram, Twitter etc.
If you want to use similar fabrics and threads to what I have used, you will require:
* one yard/metre of solid white or cream fabric for the embroidered blocks
* one yard/metre medium print pink floral
* one yard/metre medium print blue floral
* one yard/metre small print coffee spot floral
* one yard/metre striped pink, blue, coffee floral

DMC Rich Rose 816
DMC Pink 151
* quilt wadding 42" x 60"
*quilt backing fabric 42" x 60"
The fabrics used in my quilt are from Tanya Whelan's "Petal" range. If you want you can use a few different blue floral prints, and a few pink floral prints, but I have chosen to use just the one of each.
(it's a good quilt for using your scrap fabric stash)
The quilt has eight rows, and we'll piece the rows as we go along. Block 1 has a row all to itself so the piecing for that row, as well as the first embroidered block, will be shared Monday June 8th.
I've finished three rows, and nine blocks...only five rows and seventeen blocks to go!
