I made this for the Decorate My House swap.  I was originally planning on just embroidering the middle panel but once I had it all sewn together I thought machine quilting it would look silly so I just continued to embroider  Smiley  I think it ended up being about 3 feet long and 19" tall.



Here is a close up of the middle that Phizzychick took:


Thanks for looking and thanks for the fantastic pattern Aimee Ray!

This is so neat!

I have no skill/talent for hand sewing or embroidery, but I recognize beauty when I see it.  And this is beautiful.  It's sweet and fresh looking.

Your swap partner is lucky!

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

Wow! Very pretty and inspiring! And I love Aimee Ray designs too.
The center embroidery is very charming.
Did you quilt the rest of it with embroidery thread? Is that hard to do because it's thick?

Thanks everyone!  It was really fun to make and I can't believe that my short attention span lasted long enough to complete it!

Yup, I quilted it with embroidery thread because I was worried that machine stitching would look out of place.

It wasn't difficult at all.  I used iron-on cotton batting that is pretty thin so it wasn't too thick.  The hardest part was trying to handle it during the quilting since I didn't hoop it  Smiley
