I am hand appliquing blocks for a quilt. I want to hand embroider the details on the leaves and flowers. What do you think, should I do it after piecing the blocks together or after machine quilting the quilt?
I personally would do it on each block as I go, otherwise it gets very heavy. But mind you I'm not the expert. Maybe someone else has a better way of doing the embroidery. Good luck.

are you talking about hand or machine embroidery

i should read more carefully. i do the embroidery on the block before it is set into the quilt top. it is much easier to work on.
Thank you, I never thought about the weight of the finished top.
Thank you for the input. I feel more confident about what I am doing now.
I do the embroidered details before I sew my blocks together. It seems easier to handle for me.
