November OMG 2017 Goal Update

My OMG/UFO goal for November was the number 2 (drawn by Patchwork Times).

I wanted to turn the Brazilian embroidered piece into a pillow.

To create texture, I free motion quilted around the embroidery.

I was frustrated when I discovered that some of my threads bled a bit when I removed my blue quilting marks with water.

However, I was able to wash out the bleeding with a good soak in Dawn dishwashing liquid.  (What a relief!)

The back of the pillow has a hidden zipper.

I am happy with how it turned out!

This pillow is destined to be a gift.

    • Thank you for stopping by, Sarah!

      The pillow was gifted to someone close to my heart, and I know it has a good home, so I feel great about giving it away. 🙂
