Mendhi embroidery on Affairs of the Heart blocks


These blocks were for a queen quilt. Plain sashing seemed too bland and other traditional pieced borders either didn’t complement the blocks or were a distraction. The Mendhi embroidery was perfect: they matched the tone of the blocks without drawing your eyes away from the blocks.

Beautiful! I love how the gold borders create segments. It almost gives it a crochet effect.

Thank you. I was thrilled to find something that completed the quilt’s empty space without competing with the blocks main focus.

Wow. Amazing!!!

Thank you. It’s egged me on to try more embroidery in unusual places. It was fun using every shade of thread I had in the outer layer-- never repeating the same combination for any one design.
