Wild Crazy Pillow

I've been on a wild crazy stitching adventure and it resulted in this pillow.  This is all done with raw edge applique, hand embroidery/quilting, and decorative machine stitches.  The background fabric is from an old pair of pants.

 I loved the pace of going back and forth between hand stitching and machine stitching.  I just kept going back and forth, adding more fabric pieces, stitching or embellishment until it felt "finished."

I really didn't know how I was going to finish it until I did, LOL.  It turned out to be a pillow!

I love the embroidery stitching as quilting on the print fabrics!

Playing with the decorative stitches on my Bernina was fun, too.
 This was such a fun and creative project.  I'd love to do another.

I'm linking up with Artists in Blogland Show and tell Saturday.  And we did it Wednesday at sew Much Ado.


  1. Laney I am loving your stichwork-so wish I could wield a needle and thread like this. Just beautiful!


I'd love to hear what you have to say
