I just love the combination of primitive embroidery and quilting...what do you think?
I did this embroidery at the quilt retreat and it sat at my house for a few days calling my name to finish it and give it purpose. I went downstairs to retrieve some batting to make a pillow out of it and came across an old collection of charm squares from the collection, "76 Trombones" that came out a couple of years ago. I had grand ideas to do a marvelous table runner or something out of them and sewed them up into half square trianges. I recycled an unfinished project and voila I was able to get a pillow and 5 hot pads out of the squares.
