Besides making sure my project and post for the blog hop were ready to go, this week I also finished up the Flake Family Portrait, an embroidery design by Melisa at PinkernPunkin Quilting. Melisa is so generous with sharing her embroidery and cross-stitch designs and I have a hard time resisting them!
Aren't they cute?! I stitched this all in black floss which is a first for me,
but I really like the look of it.
I decided to border it with black and white in a churn dash design. You can't tell in the photo, but the black is not a solid - it has a very light gray flower design all through it. Very pretty in person!
Because the front is so monochromatic, I chose a backing that is very colorful!
(And appropriate, too, right?!)
And some Buffalo plaid for the binding.
This little mini is just the right size to hang on the side of my refrigerator for a seasonal decoration.
Now that the Family Portrait is finished, I'll be getting back to hand quilting the Dancing Pluses. No new pictures this week, but I have made good progress on it. That will be my Sunday Slow Stitching as I join in over at Kathy's Quilts.
The cutest family portrait! Love how you have framed it.
How cool is having a seasonal decoration on your refrigerator ?! Love this!! Family portrait is a winner. I saved this pattern and want to stitch this cute at some time this year. Oh Yes Diann, you picked the right backing for your mini hanger.
What a great way to frame and display your snow family! Love the Buffalo check binding.
A very cute finish! The churn dash frame worked well and so did the buffalo plaid binding. Congrats on the finish.
the snowmen are so cute!
Adorabble! I love it! The layout really frames the embroidery well. Have fun slow stitching today!
"Flake Family" - lol! That is so cute Diann. I love the buffalo plaid binding, just perfect.
So cute, and I like how you finished it with the colorful back.
That Flake Family, so photogenic! I love your churn dash border; it gives me an idea if churn dash is a cue in the SAHRR.
I love the border idea! So striking!
I thought I might 'see' your kids but alas, your snow family is cute too. :)
It's wonderful! I'm working on finishing mine today too!
I love that you set it in the churn dash center! And perfect binding choice!
Black, white and red is always such a great combo. This is really cute.
Aaah , Family Portrait is as cute as a button, Diann and I love how you finished it. The Churn Dash block is one of my favorites. Thank you so much for stitching the Flake family. You brought a smile to my day .
Your little snowman family is adorable and love the backing(a little surprise for those that might look). I did an embroidery quilt of snowmen and love it still. Put the quilt on my bed as an extra quilt for the holiday season!
The borders on the quilt are great! I'll have to try it.
Family Portrait is adorable, as is your Villa Rosa project! Great finishes!
I really love this embroidery piece. I especially love how you finished it with the churn dash and the buffalo plaid.
Great finish, that family are certainly cute!
The Flake Family Portrait is just darling. I love the churn dash block and it was a great way to frame the stitchery.
Snowman Family is the cutest! I enjoy cross/stitching too. This block pattern would be cute for a trivet.
