Jelly Roll quilting progressing and a new mystery quilt started

Thanks for everyone's input on quilting straight lines on the rectangles...I love it! I've started doing the pebbling inside the rectangles and I'm very pleased with the look, even though my pebbling isn't perfect! :)I've embroidered the first block for this year's LQS Redwork Club Mystery Quilt-the theme is butterflies and I've designed all the blocks (with inspirational help from vintage designs.)
The blocks will look like they're set on point but actually the set of the quilt is straight. Fun, huh?

I'm linking to Sarah's Can I get a Whoop Whoop so hop on over and see some great work!

I like your embroidery. I've been practicing pebbling also. I love the look it produces, but it does take control and practice.

Pebbling doesn't have to be perfect Miri, like leaves no two are exactly the same! It looks lovely.
