Design Wall Monday with Two Finishes

Venetian Tiles, an X-Block pattern is finally done (well, almost as I have one side border to sew the binding down).  Just another of those quilt tops that needed to be quilted.  I used the scraps and my tri-recs ruler to make the border pieces.

The Stitch Connection is one of my favorite applique sampler sites.  I've made the Snowman Sampler in applique and machine redwork embroidery too.  I have the teddy bears, angles, a lot of embroidery designs as well. This one is called Bloomin' Flowers and it was a treat to stitch on the embroidery machine.  I get a kick out of combining my favorites styles in one quilt, i.e., traditional piecing, machine embroidery and using scraps.  Mine look totally different than their version but I wanted to see what effect scraps would look like and it's WONDERFUL.
