This week I completed this birthday project for a special little lady in our lives Amy Grace. She loves all things purple so working with the ‘All In A Row’ design I worked her favourite colours into this lovely pillow for her bed. Given that this will be in a child’s room I decided not to use needle turn and worked the appliqué on linen using blanket stitching which is more robust. I loved working on this project, using scraps of material and the gorgeous colours of DMC Perle 8 threads. For those who are interested, I am currently running classes at the Margie & Bert Studio for this design and I will be teaching versions of the same (with additional patchwork) on the 2016 Quilting, Patchwork and Paperwork Cruise.

Note – the teddy bear in the bottom picture. This is last of many knitted teddies my Mother and Amy’s Gran (Margie) made. She used to knit these and send them to the Princess Margaret Hospital for Children in Perth. This one didn’t get that far but I am so glad to have it in my possession.
