Watch My Garden Grow Stitch Along

As you spring into spring, join Instructor Jess McDonald for this bunny-tastic stitch along! “Watch My Garden Grow” by Kathy Schmits is a beginner-friendly project. The finished size is 6” x 6” and can be used as a quilt block, a patch, or finished in a hoop or frame. Perfect for Easter! 

Jess will walk you through stitching this adorable piece using a variety of hand embroidery stitches including stem stitch, lazy daisy, french knots, and more! The design will be pre-printed on a sheet of sticky solvy, however, students can transfer the design with a marking tool of their choice if they prefer. Students will be shown how to finish off their piece in a hoop. 

Students must purchase a copy of the PDF before the start of the class. Please purchase here:

There are two versions of this project: Outlined and Filled. Students can choose how much detail they would like to do based on their skill level!
