How I Spent My Weekend …

I saw this picture a few months ago somewhere on the internet and wanted to incorporate the technique into a quilt.

So … we ended one of our new market quilts with a big white border.

And I spent all weekend doing this …

I think it’s going to turn out really cute!

I especially like how the corners are turning out …

Now the bad news … I have to stitch another quilt before market! We make 2 samples of everything.

Better get busy!

    That is really pretty! I see a quilt there though, all done in fabric. On the list.

    OH!! I really love that!! How long did it take to do? I bet the first one is really fun… the second not so much! LOL Is it Pearle 8?

    Thanks for sharing that Barb, I love it, and it could be the answer to one of my bug bears, I couldn’t find the right fabric for a border for a quilt, now I’m thinking the white border with the embroidery in matching colours to the rest of the quilt.
    Good luck with getting those quilts finished in time for market !

    I love the embroidery you did. I love to embroider and doesn’t seem like many people do it any more. What hopefully your quilt will bring it back. I try to do a little on every quilt I make.

    That’s going to be gorgeous. Good luck. I really love that look myself, although I could never do it with my hand.

    Pretty, I can’t wait to see how this turns out!

  14. I totally love it. Just the wee skirt alone is just adorable!

  15. How cute is this!! I love it when inspiration like this comes along. I just have to remember this! I can bookmark this post where it will get lost among the 8,000 bookmarks I’ve thus far accumulated, or I can write it on a sticky note where it undoubtedly will end up stuck to my jeans one day and ultimately land on the car seat, or you can send me a note after the holidays to remind me that I want to do some of these stitches. There, that’s surely the most reliable idea of all….you are reliable, right?
