Primitive Wall Quilt

Here's the primitive wall quilt that I designed and made up last week. I'm pretty pleased with how nicely it fits on one of the bigger walls of my bedroom and how it matches my border so well.
Here's a little closer view of the center embroidery:
I drew out my design for the center on paper and then used a yardstick to help line things up when drawing the pattern on my piece of muslin.  My favorite part is the bow ties that it hangs by -- love the look they give the quilt!

Just lovely! Love the embroidery and the patterns! The bows are the perfect touch. I love that you can make your own decor pieces. You are so talented!

Esther: I just LOVE this, and I also love the way you think (and create) outside the box. You always allow the Spirit of God to move you in new directions with your crafting, and it's SO beautiful. The best part is that you are it all with us at Word Art Wednesday.
Also, this would be perfect to link at Stampin' Sisters in Christ where the theme is music, and Twist of Faith Cards where the theme is angels.
Have a blessed week, my friend.

You do such a good job pulling things together. This is adorable and I love the tag you put on your lamb pillow.

Another fantastic job! This would have cost lots of money at a shop, but you have twice the pleasure - you got to make it, and you got to save all that money, too. :)
