    Are you filling in with white inside each block too? I tried to zoom in and I think I see stitches.

    I need to buy my supplies today!

  7. Ava says:

    Hope my question is not too complicated. Say the diagonal line where the quarter stitches should be is bordering too colors. Using your example the green uppermost point which borders the white. Would half of the quarter be in green and the other half be in white?

    Also are you using the sharp tipped or blunt tip needle?


  8. Jackie says:

    Thank you very much for your generosity. I have printed the charts and will be on to my start soon.

    Been wanting to learn cross-stitching for some time but can’t seem to keep the patience for it. So, hopefully, this small project will get me moving.

    I’ll check out some instructions on youtube so I don’t have to ask a lot of questions — like, how many strands of thread is used? Silly things like that LOL

  17. Oh yes! yes! yes! I have to do this! My DH just brought home a big box of cross stitch fabric from the local thrift shop today & I really want to stitch something. How adorable! Thanks so much for doing this. Have a super day!

  18. Judy S says:

    I would like to know how many strands of embroidery floss you used? Thanks

  19. Hildy says:

    Newbie her. I understand to find the center of the aida. Then you measure 5 inches over and five inches up, but what stitch goes in that spot? Is that we’re the smashing starts or the first quilt block and how to I center the quilt block in the square created by the smashing? How many strands of floss are you using?

  20. Jackie says:

    One more “Thank you” Corey:) I finished my block last night and I’ve just posted into the flick(er) group.
    This was a lot of fun!

  21. Hildy says:

    Hey Corey, I know I asked this before, but didn’t see a response. When I count the five inches up and over, is this where the smashing starts?
    Or is this where the swoon block starts? If it is the swoon block, is this the top right of the block? I am still waiting to get started. Lucky me,because I have some wonderful stitchers in my quilt guild that have offered to help.

  22. Bea says:

    These blocks are SEW clever and how great that you used EQ for them. makes me want to cross stitch now, hmmm. How big do you need the canvas to be? I guess how many stitches across? I heard it’s 16 blocks, so 4 x 4 and I’ll count the swoon block, I have a ton of presencia for embroidery but using it for something like that would be darling, just wondering about the thickness

    Hello Corey,
    I’m here via Sew We Quilt! Samm talked with me several weeks ago and has asked me to be one of the Cheerleaders for her new site Sew we Stitch!! I LOVE Quilting but my old love of Cross Stitching can now be incorporated into my quilting!! How many of us have a drawer full of unfinished cross stitch projects or finished projects but nothing creative to use them for…until Now!!! I’m excited to reclaim my love of everything cross stitch and think I’ll join in with your Stitch Along once Christmas is voer and I finish quilting a quilt for a client. No more paid clients, 2015 is going to be stitching for ME!!!!
