This week, I focused on finishing up the fall embroidery design from Patchwork Loves Embroidery, Too, by Gail Pan, and here it is!
To bring this piece up to a 12.5 block, I added a border out of some scrappy fall-themed squares in reds and browns. Of course, it had to include pumpkins and sunflowers!
This is going to become a pillow cover for a birthday gift for another friend here.
I made a few more QAYG hexagons, and keep playing with different layout ideas.
Still more are needed!
After all that, I needed another embroidery project to work on, so traced this one from my book yesterday afternoon. I'll be using a DMC variegated blue floss, 4237, called Laguna Blue to stitch this one.
I'll be working on this today for my Slow Sunday Stitching
(and probably all week, too)! And making a few more hexies along the way. :)
Linking up with Kathy and all the other Sunday Stitchers at Kathy's Quilts.
you are flying along with those hexie! and the embroidery with the orange fabric is going to be a fall favorite I bet.
Love your embroideries, Gail Pan has such wonderful designs. Happy stitching!
Oh the fall fabric squares really add and change the look of your stitchery pillow top. I switched from stitchin' to knitting in the evenings.
That's a great Autumn stitching project! The Just Sew block looks like a lot of fun. Happy stitching!
Your fall embroidery panel turned out great and the scraps you framed it with are just right. It's going to make such a nice gift for your friend.
That will make a cute pillow! Watching all the people that do embroidery... I may have top pick that up again! Do you print the pattern on your own fabric?
You are famous over on Karen's blog today!
Those fall fabrics are the perfect frame for your lovely embroidery! Enjoy your new project!
Thanks for sharing with the Slow Sunday Stitching crew!
Lovely embroidery and fabric surround, too. Your hexies are realy coming along well..Cheerful colors...hugs, Julierose
Love your embroidery and hexies! Saw your block on Karen's blog today! Happy stitching!
The way you are combining your embroidered pieces into quilted items is SEW sweet, Diann!!
Perfect little fall wallhanging; so cute! Love the hexies too, and they seem to be coming along easily.
The Autumn stitchery turned out perfect. I'm sure your friend will be delighted with her pillow. What do you use to trace your embroidery? I have a snowman piece I started 2 years ago. I used pencil but traced very lightly, so lightly that I can't see all the lines. I need to go over it with some other marking device.
What a lovely autumn cushion your embroidery will make.
Love your Autumn stitchery block, looking so good with the border added. And your new stitchery project looks great, a nice sewing inspired design. Are you keeping this one?
I saw your name block on Karen's blog and thought excitedly "I know this quilter" not in real life sadly but through blogland of course. We are all part of the extended quilting family!
Each time I visit your lovely place there is always something beautiful to gaze upon. Your finished Autumn stitchery adorns the the border perfectly; 'tis lovely. I love the look of your "Just Sew" new stitchery. Enjoy your day, happily stitching away.
Embroidery is so relaxing and your stitching is beautiful. Your friend will certainly love the Autumn pillow. So sweet!
Your pillow cover is so pretty, especially with the fall-themed blocks. Love the thread you used, is it variegated? Those hexagons are so darned cute. I got my template yesterday! I'm really hoping I can stay in the sewing room today and just play with no interruptions - lol!
Lovely embroidery, and your hexies are just beautiful, love the 2 colors
