The houses have our family names embroidered on them.
Then, with borders. I bribed Ethan to hold one end of the quilt for me. I also changed up the borders. I added the small white and beefed up the outer. I think the designer had only one 4" border in a white/red print. However, she posted a picture of someone else that did a scalloped border. I may steal that idea. We'll see how I do on the quilting.
The designer is Red Brolly, her blog is one of my favorites. If you like to embroider or always wished you did, you need to visit her blog. She has everything, from stitch tutorials to free patterns to baking recipes. Seriously, very generous with her free patterns.
Last but not least, I made some pumpkin pie. My friend Dana e-mailed this pattern and thought it was right up my ally. She was right, I love it!
