Prayer Garden Quilt

A few squares of the Prayer Garden Quilt were displayed in an earlier blog.  As we all do, it was abandoned for awhile as other pursuits called in a louder voice.  Well, it’s all finished and delivered now!  I was led to finish it for a grand daughter’s birthday so was able to customize it for her as a queen-size quilt – complete with gardening pictures, Bible scripture, and ruffles!IMG_1918[1]

Cute pillow

Pillow Talk with the Word

I made another embroidered pillow today and polished the pillow back with embroidered buttonholes and covered buttons (covered with the material from the front of the pillow.) The embroidered buttonhole instructions came from Designs in Machine Embroidery by Eileen Roche – from her blog of May 15, 2013. The blog included the file to save to your machine – she is very generous!

The pillow inserts can get quite pricey, so I decided to order my own fiberfill on line – 25 lbs for $94 – little did I know how much 25 lb equals in fiberfill:) Will post a picture!
