Nature's Beauty - Finished

It's 2:20 am for me...and I'm up waiting for a work meeting that starts in about 10 minutes.

Thought I'd make a quick post while I'm waiting.....to keep me from falling asleep!


I finished my LHN piece, Nature's Beauty!  I'm so happy with it!


This is my first time finishing a piece as a pillow, and I think it turned out perfectly.   I used fabric from my stash and made up the pattern as I went along


Here's pictures of the front and the back:





My thanks goes out again to Bekca for this wonderful pattern :)


Happy Friday to everyone!

Whoa, meeting at 2:30 am? Must be with someone on my side of the world. It's nearly 3pm here ^.^

Only 10 minutes for a quick post? It takes me much, much longer than that.

Anyway, I love your pillow finish. The ruffles on the side are so cute! Beautiful work, Lesli.

Hugs,
Veronica.

It's beautiful. I have been frogging my Love Quilt square for days now. Stitches in, stitches out, stitches in, stitches out...praying I make the June 1st deadline and that I finish the diamond in the middle today so that I can move on from this horrific backstitching!
