A lot of stitching time went into making the fourth block of "Across the Wide Missouri". If I were making a second block (and I'm not), I would not do the double rows of embroidered lines on the beehive. Only because it added stitching time to the block and could be just as effective with one line of heavier thread for each row across.
I have a wall hanging size quilt top almost done, so I will be posting again soon. Check back with me.
