Jim the Pillow, part 5

Jim the Pillow is finished! I hope you all have enjoyed seeing how to start with a photo, make a pattern, applique the shape, and add embroidery to bring your pet to life.

Watch this video to see how I embroidered the flowers—plus how to sew the chain and detached chain stitches!

It’s subtle, but the lines of stitching below Jim anchor him in place :-). I finished the bottom of the pillow with a zipper to make it easy to clean as needed.

The Unicorn is Magical! Show & tell…

Lisa Dobberke emailed a little while back asking if I had ideas for quilting the Magical Unicorn quilt that she made for her granddaughter—and I did! One thing I suggested was quilting in words and phrases inside the background fill.

Lisa said: I included her name, some “grandma style” words in English and Spanish (she is in Spanish immersion Kindergarten) using a general meandering pattern with some flowers, hearts, and butterflies mixed in.  This was my first appliqué quilt–sure was fun!

She also used a “wiggly eye” to go with the big eyelashes… very cute!

Thank you, Lisa, for sharing your quilt with us! I know your granddaughter is going to treasure it—and have many sweet dreams under it :-).
