Always Kiss Me Goodnight

I’ve been playing around with embroidery like crazy lately. It all started when I found Urban Threads. Holy Mama! Their stuff is pretty awesome. And every week or two they have a free design, a new release, and something on sale.  So I made a pillow because this design was FREE.  And no, this is not a sponsored post.  I just love their stuff.  The fabric is Art Gallery’s Reminisce.  And no, they did not sponsor this post either.  I paid for the fabric, kids.  But I did get it on sale because this girl loves a bargain!

And yes, I stipple quilted it. I know, I know, it’s kind of like the cobbler’s kids having lousy shoes and teachers’ kids acting like little turds. I’m a quilter and have stippled quilts. It’s a travesty that I can live with, though. I mean, usually I’m not inviting people into my bedroom, so aside from you guys, no one will know.

As for the quilt on the bed, that’s a fun story, too.  I won my guild’s block of the month.  Well, actually I made 11 blocks so that I would have the odds ever in my favor!  And I did win.  In fact, I won 60 blocks!  So I ended up making about 70 more, threw them together into a quilt, and voila!  A summer quilt for the bed.   And just because I wanted one quilt that wasn’t stippled, I did a light custom job on it.  Now I have 3 quilts I’ve made for my bed.  My goal is one more, then I can switch them out seasonally.  In theory anyway:-)

Happy Quilting,

Danielle
