Went a little pillow crazy today!

I discovered some wonderful embroidery designs on etsy yesterday. The designer is Meringue Designs. I promptly made this one for my daughter who loves all things "Mommy Made". ;-)And this one for my husband. I had some linen fabric that I bought a couple of weeks ago from JoAnn's that worked perfectly for the pillows. I don't do much machine embroidery because I have a hard time finding designs that I like and really don't like to do color changes. These designs were minimal color changes.
I will get back to my whirlygig quilt tomorrow!
Take care,
Cathy

  8. Thank you everyone! I used my Bernina 630 and the large oval hoop. The designs stitched out beautifully! Meringue Designs does an outstanding job digitizing. I did a few more today, that I will post after I finish with the binding.
