After finishing up the Gail Pan "Joy to the World" embroidery earlier this week,
I decided to turn it into a little pillow for my mom.
This festive red fabric that I found on our Thanksgiving trip became a border for the embroidery.
This photo makes the red look a lot brighter than it really is.
A little bit of quilting, both by hand and by machine, holds the layers together.
This is more true to the actual color - dark red!
I used the same fabric for an envelope backing.
I also made one of the other embroidered pieces that I finished into a mini quilt tor my sister.
Borders, backing, quilting, and binding - it all went together really quickly!
I'm going to have to trace a couple more of these sweet designs to work on - they're kind of addicting, and I might as well keep going on them!
Happy Sunday stitching to all!
