GRACE AND SEWING SEEDS

Fresh from the dryer are two finished projects.  Both are from patterns by Cheri Saffiote-Payne.  And by the way, Cheri has a new blog.  If you haven't found it already, pay her a visit here.  She also has a website with lots of prim style patterns to choose from.  You can see them here.

The first finish is "Sowing Seeds".  Could be used as a table runner but I am going to drape it over a cabinet door.  I like the shapes of the prim style flowers.  I am trying to expand my machine quilting designs to something besides diagonal line quilting.  I did clamshells on this piece.
The second finish is "Grace".  A very prim style gardening angel.

I was going to post this tomorrow since I already did a post today but I remembered that I have a lot to do then.

Back to my stitching.

  4. Both are adorable. I am almost finished my "Grace". I did most of mine in wool so a lot of handwork.
