Candlewicking Throw Pillow

I just love batiks! I just love them to death! I would just eat them if I could! I love putting them in quilt, and now that I’ve discovered the joy of making throw pillows, I’m just going to use up all the batiks in the world. First, I think I’ll try to tackle the ones in my stash before I get too excited! Haha!

I had never really knew what candlewicking was before I saw it on one of the embroidery machines at work. I really love it! I love this design. It just looks so, sexy… classy! I can’t wait to mess around with it quite a bit more! Maybe I’ll do some kind of swirly candlewicking designs that have a leafy accent. Who knows…

For All The Peyton Manning Fans…

I finally finished this! I feel so bad that it took me so long, but the woman who bought it was very understanding. I’m giving her a discount for the fact that it is almost a week late. I’m so happy to have it done! I love the blue thread I used. I cannot remember the name, but I need to get more from work on payday. I was going to use white, but I don’t know why I just decided to use blue at the last minute. I like the way it turned out. I can’t wait to mail it out!

Pillow Cases For My Bed, And Then A Quilt To Match

I have quite a lost of things to do! I have to finish the quilt for my cousins, Jim and Kim, and then the winner of the blog giveaway’s quilt, Cin, and then I also want something for myself.

I’m going to start on the pillowcases for my bed. I’ve found the cutest fabric for it! I’ll do one in the leaves, and one in the green, and do applique embroidery on each other in the opposite fabric, and then use the rest of it for a quilt I am making that will match them. I have a few ideas in my head, but nothing concrete yet, so we shall see! Seriously though, aren’t these fabric amazing!

Crazy Quilt: Put On A Binding

I put on a binding! I’m not completely done with the quilting, but I wanted to pick out a binding. I just have about 2 more hours of work to do on it, and then I can call it a day! Well, not quite. I still have to do the buttons! I’ve got about 4 more hours of work to do on this, but then it will be done, and I can start on the next one! I’m really excited!

Now That I Am At Home…

Now That I sewed at work all day and made that lovely Throw Pillow, I am at home working on this Colts Quilt. I’m beyond late with this, but I’m giving a 20% refund for being a week late. The fabric was stuck in Florida during that snow storm, and then my life got hectic. Oy vey! Glad things are beginning to calm down. So, if you will excuse me, I have something to quilt!

Here Is The Embroidered Throw Pillow I Promised

I meant to post this in the morning, but I just never got around to it. I’m also glad I got time to finish the quilting on it this morning. I just love the way it turned out! I’m super happy with my fabric choices. I was kind of worried about the green applique flowers, but in the end I love them! Now I just have to grab a 16 by 16 pillow and I’ll be happy!

 

Another Embroidered Pillow Sneak Peek

This is going to be one lovely throw pillow! I did the embroidery at work, and I have the pieces cut to start the quilting it, but I’m quilting the Colt’s Quilt tonight so it will have to wait until tomorrow. The more I work on an Embroidery machine, the more I want one! I so desperately want one! Someone buy me a Viking Designer Ruby Deluxe! I’ll be your best friend forever!

Throw Pillow: All Done

I did most of it at work, and then did the rest at home and made the pillow that fills it from scraps of batting and fleece. I just did an overlap in the back, because I didn’t feel like doing buttons. So here it is. I rather like it! I think I might even teach a class on it one of these days. I love the fabric pattern, and I think the teal thread really made it pop! I can’t wait to make a larger one! I think I might even do quilted pillowcases that match my Legend of Zelda Bed Quilt!
