In between the storms today, I was able to work on the extra blocks that I wanted to add to the second charity Breast Cancer Quilt I am starting to assemble. I had blank blocks added to make it to the 10 blocks by 12 layout size I wanted, but could not keep them blank. So, off to the embroidery machine I went. I was able to get these completed pretty quick. They all needed to be light backgrounds to work with the layout I was thinking about.
I'm pretty much happy with how they turned out except two. Why is it that every embroidery font that comes with a sewing machine has a funky looking I? I mean the capital I's always look like T's to me. What gives? Ugh... What do you think? I wanted it in all caps since I'll have four blocks in caps and four in sentence case.
While I am being picky, I'm thinking my capital C looks almost like an E. Instead of CURE, my eyes are seeing EURE. Maybe it's time to push up that eye doctor visit. I may be off to look for new fonts with basic I's and C's to redo these two blocks. I wanted to keep them all in the same font, but, not sure I will.
Thanks for stopping by!
