It's Finished! Wrap it up!

This evening after work I had the opportunity to run both of my machines at once.  The purr of my embroidery machine along with the noise of my Beast, finishing up my scrappy quilting pillow, was wonderful!

First the pillow:  after finishing the dense straightline quilting, I used my embroidery machine to quilting a design in the center squares.  The AMH backing was perfect.  It only took a few moments to insert a zipper and stitch the edges.  The pillow measures about 19.5 inches square.  

I found some incredible, large letters to embroider on just about anything, so I am making some bags with a single letter as gifts.

The print fabric is the lining.  These bags will be fun, and I have So Many fat quarters to use!  Am trying to decide on how to finish the top right now.  


I am linking up to WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced.


  1. I love those quilted flowers - great job!

  2. Awesome! How productive to have 2 machines going at once. The pillow finished up beautifully.

  3. The pillow looks great - congrats on finishing it up! And your letter is so cool. Can't wait to see the bag!

  4. I read this the other morning, but it must have been too early for my brain to do words!! Great finish. Doesn't it just 'make your heart sing' when you've completed a project from start to finish??
