The challenge this month was to take two pillowcases and embroider each one with a design/theme that’s the opposite of the other pillowcase. Good dreams / nightmares, night / day, winter / summer…

Fifteen projects were entered and the winner out of all of the amazing entries was Red Paint for her entry, Butterfly Effect: Order & Chaos Embroidered Pillowcases!

Her creation represented a nice orderly pattern versus chaos. The delicate and colorful entry received over 8,000 views – wow! Check out additional photographs here:
