Thankful Heart Banner (another detour)

One more small detour before getting back on track with the couch slipcovers:

Thankful Heart Banner

I was on a roll with Valentine decorating and remembered this Thankful Heart design from Embroidery Library from a while back. The design is machine embroidered on a scrap piece of linen-type fabric and it was finished as a small banner using scraps of fabrics from my stash. I stitched in the ditch around linen section for the "quilting".

I'm not sure I framed the fabric sections "correctly" -- maybe the longer sides should have been horizontal? Or maybe I should have tried to "log cabin" them. As it is, it makes a nice mini banner to hang on the front door.

Next month, I plan to make a St. Patrick's Day companion piece using another EL design, entitled "Best Friend & Four Leaf Clover". I already have the linen-type fabric ready to go, I just need to decide which green fabric to clear out of my stash for the borders and backing.

Until then, I'm back on track with the slipcovers.
