...is the pansy. I've made more blocks for my one day queen-sized quilt. Hmmmm...I think I need more dark purple and a place for the eyes to rest. Busy, busy, busy.
I won a sharp crochet hook some time ago from a giveaway on Amy's Sew Incredibly Crazy blog and along with some variegated purple/green crochet cotton, a vintage pillowcase stamp I inherited and a book on edgings from the thrift store...
...I decided to make some pillowcases to go with the someday pansy quilt. The sharp crochet hook easily went through the pillowcase dots I marked every 1/4 inch to make the foundation stitches and then I changed to a size 6 crochet hook to finish the edging. I wish I had taken a better photo of the edging. It must have flipped up during the photo shoot. Embroidery is stitched with 3 strands of DMC embroidery thread.
Linking up with Slow Stitching Sunday at Kathy's Quilts. She has some links to hand quilting inspiration this week that I'm going to review when I get the chance. Heaven knows I need help with my hand quilting and I don't know anyone personally that can teach me.
