The Spendid Sampler - Local Quilt Shop

This one is paper pieced.  Rather than hand embroider the sign, I digitized it in my embroidery software (words and outer ring stitches), stitched it out, then machine appliqued it onto the house block.  Remember these blocks are only 6.5" unfinished, so the applique is an inch by an inch & a quarter!  As far as hand work on this one...I hand sewed a running stitch along the applique seam allowance so I could easily stitch it down.  The name is what popped into my head rather than the suggested "Quilt Shoppe".
