A Finish for the 2017 Q3 Finish-A-Long

Hello Everyone! Today I want to share another finish for the 2017 Finish-A-Long. You can find my list here.


This is the October stitchery from Jenny of Elefantz’s “a year in the garden”. For fall, I changed the background mini quilt and am using Fig Tree fabrics for the border around the embroidery.


I used Aurifloss by Aurifil for most of the stitches, but the flowers are stitched with a Sue Spargo 8 weight perle cotton by Eleganza Thread. I really like the look of the variegated thread for the flowers. I just did some simple echo quilting around the circle. It looks like I still need a little practice keeping the echo spacing consistent.

I have November and December to finish. I better get on it since I haven’t started either of them. Thanks for stopping by.
