While in the car today, waiting for Al, I was able to do some hand quilting. This is a new stencil that I got from Hearts to Holly Quilt Shop and I've been dying to try it. I used a silver marking pencil to mark the quilt lines on the white Kona. the "thread" is deep blue embroidery floss as it comes, not split. Hand quilting is SO relaxing. I wish I had more time to do it. I'd love a whole quilt with this design.
The fabric is just old blue and white shirting plaids that I've been collecting plus a few prints from the 80's or 90's.
And those buttons in the center of the pillow? Vintage ones from my jar of buttons... stacked two of them together.Now that the pillow is finished, I'm back to peeling peaches and getting them packed into freezer jars. This peach shortcake is a little reward for all that work :)
