Embroidered Baby Quilt Update

My original plan was to embroider something in every 2×2″ blue square and 2×4″ blue rectangle. Viewed from a distance, the little pictures don’t compete with the basic color scheme of the quilt at all. In fact, they kinda blend in with the busyness of the quilt itself (which is a lot busier than I anticipated). Some days I like it more than others. So far there are roughly 40 embroidered blocks. I think I will just fill in the remaining two 6×6″ tan blocks, and maybe, just maybe, a few more blue ones to balance things out, and call it a day.

Then, of course, I will have the great joy of figuring out how best to quilt around them all 🙂

Close-ups of the blocks are here, here, here, here, here, here, and here. (Wow, maybe I should collect all those links on one page or something?)
