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:-)
