Making something we can ACTUALLY use…?!

Remember this?

I received my pillow back from Bernina that is going to appear in their “Through the Needle” issue coming out in November. I was told this issue debuted in the Houston Quilt Market over the weekend. I will post more pictures when I receive my complimentary copies of the magazine:

It is another project with the whole-cloth theme except the main motifs were done by machine embroidery. I had also monogrammed an S for our family last name to give it a more personal and custom look. The background quilting was free-motion quilted with the Bernina Stitch Regulator.

What am I going to do with the pillow? It will be used as a decorative pillow to be looked at admiringly, and occasionally to be handled with clean hands. :) My husband aptly asked me upon completion of the project a while back, “When are you going to make something we can actually use?”. You know what, he had a point…

Thank you for stopping by. I hope you have a lovely Tuesday! As always, I love reading your comments. So, if you are able, do let me know when you’ve been by so that I can visit you back!

  1. You have been very busy while I was away! LOVE your pillow and the cardinal piece! Your talent never ceases to amaze and delight me! :)

    …and your Fall tablescape below is gorgeous!!! I love the cornucopia piece! How unique! Have a great Tuesday! ~Rhonda :)

  2. Can’t wait for the newest issue of Through the Needle to see your beautiful work showcased there. It has been such a fun journey so far with you on your sewing adventure and remember, I said it long ago, “You will be well known in the industry before long!” Can you believe she has only been sewing a little longer than 3years?? Natural-born talent!

  3. This is absolutely beautiful. Everything doesn’t have to be “functional” some things just need to be looked at. This is one of those things. I wish my sewing machine would do that.

  4. What beautiful work. You inspire me to try my hand at feathers. I’m new to quilting but have fallen in love with the artistry of machine quilting. I read somewhere that you use a regular home machine and that is truly inspiring as it demonstrates it’s not the fancy equipment but the skill of the artist. Thank you for sharing your works of art!!
