The Dresden Pillow - The Finish

So, here it is - the finished Dresden pillow.  Pieced, embroidered, quilted, bordered, bound, zipped, labeled, temporarily stuffed and ready to mail.  I'm sorry for the picture.  It was dark when I got home last night and cloudy this morning, so not very good lighting - and the flash just seemed to wash it out.

The colors are a real departure for me.  My partner asked for blues and greens, and luckily BD#1 gifted me this package of Dear Stella FQs she got at  Sewing Summit. Otherwise I wouldn't have had anything in those colors.  As it was, I added the aqua dots and the red Ruby, the Reunion pennants and a bit of Madrona Road text.  It needed some life.

I really hope she likes it!


It is never fun to write into a vacuum. I would love to know you were here, so stop and say hi!
