|I skipped a few steps here.... after tracing the pattern, doing the embroidery, trimming the center block down you are then ready to sew on the borders... |
Here the pieced borders are ready to be sewn on to the center block.
|After sewing the side borders on, then you sew on the top and |
bottom borders using a 1/4" seam.
|In the corner block, I traced part of the lazy daisy border. Here I am embroidery|
|Layer the quilt top, batting and backing and pin it so that it can be machine quilted.|
|Here I am quilting along... I quilted around the main design.|
|Sewing on the binding....|
|All done! I love it, looks so cute in my mini quilt stand. |
The finished size is 12 1/2" x 12 1/2"
The perfect size for the stand.
I hope that you enjoy 'Coneflowers'... the colors can be switched up to match whatever fabric you used. (In my sample I used Bali Handpaints #229 Wisteria and #535 Purple Haze.) I've been doing a lot of embroidery lately. I really enjoy being able to work on it while watching a movie in the evening. I find the handwork to be very relaxing. Hope to have more designs to share with you!
Happy quilting and perfect stitches to you,
