hi there everyone ~

i trust you had a beautiful easter!  we sure did.  

i am still {loving} to cut up flowers!  and while i’ve got more than a few ~ okay ~ way tooooo many ideas and irons in the fire… cutting fused flowers is just part of my daily routine these days.  seriously.  brushing teeth, washing face, cutting shapes!  can’t go to bed until i’ve cut a few?!  well… something like that!  lol

today, i’m showing details of a special custom order for a trio of these sweet, heart collages, in a decorative, quilted pillow case, with an envelope back.  

i was asked to quilt a special phrase, too. and i enjoyed adding special details with butterflies, words and black thread play around them, which makes the total look more fun:

these are finished to about 20 inches square, and an 18″ pillow insert can be  easily removed for washing the pillows when needed.

{forgot to take a photo of the envelope style back!}

i’m going to make a couple more, they are so darling.  

and yes.  more collages!  in between photography sessions, spring flowers, yard work, quilting and … perhaps a few sessions of cleaning up my studio!!  well, you know how it goes!

i’m so very thankful,
soli deo gloria!

  1. The words are are beautiful and make your work even more special. Thanks for showing close ups of your quilting, I'm doing the buffalo right now and I made a mistake with the way I'm quilting it…….I'm having trouble with my shapes coming up. Oh darn….I'll have to make another buffalo ! LOL

  2. I <3 hearts so this is right up my alley. And the little words worked into the piece really give it that special touch. This one is one of my favorites!
