Prayer Pillow

Hi!  You know today is Fabric Tuesday and I have a little project I want to share.  It was a gift for my own Mom for Mother's Day.  By the way, how was your Mother's Day?  I hope it was a wonderful as my own day was!  There was breakfast with my guys, my sweet girl and her BFF gave me a bath set and my boys gave me a beautiful terracotta pot that I had been eyeing.  They made dinner on the grill and gave me several hours to sew in complete peace!  It was great!

Part of my gift to my Mom was a pillow that I made her.

I used some dark, rich colored French General fabric, which is just what she likes!  The center is a vintage doily.  And the stitching is my own.  I put a favorite verse on there with a little ring of flowers.  (Very much inspired by this project. )

The back is more piecing with the dresden petals.  I also did an invisible first.  I came out pretty well.

And that is one more project done!  I like the way it turned out and may use more of the vintage doilies in this way.

Have a great day!  God bless!
