50 States

Oh my gosh this has my name written all over it!

It is the 50 States Stitching Club hosted by Mollie of Wild Olive.

It has all the elements I love.
First, America!
then quilting, paper piecing, embroidery, raw edge applique, who could ask for more.
This staredt a few weeks ago but I just joined.  You can join anytime you wish.
Each week we will receive a state mofit to embroider and some fun facts about the state. Mollie is working in sections and we are now in the Eastern Part of the USA.

I started by printing out the star pattern on cardstock (sad face they did not have pink). Cut them out and began to paper piece the points with White Kona.

I hit my stash and decided to go very Patriotic. 

I made NJ!  how cute is this little guy! 

Next will be adding the star points and appliqueing it on to the fabric.  I also have to remember to blot off the embroidery stitching lines. 
 I have a few more to make to catch up but I adore handwork so there is no rush.

Come join the fun!
All information can be found 

Have a wonderful weekend and I hope you do something you love.
