sweet gingham

Well, here is my little gingham project that I finished! I love how sweet it came out! I started out with the cute cross-stitch flowers, and wasn't sure what I was going to do with it, but then decided on a mini quilt. I do love making these small quilts, as they are so charming.
The strawberry fabric is one of my favorite prints in my little stash, and I thought it would be the perfect match for those cute flower pots. I also added some hand quilting with two different shades of pink embroidery thread. 
And, for the finishing touch I crocheted a variegated green scalloped edge! I adore all these colors together. So pretty and fresh!
Now, it is ready to be hung and bring some sweetness to my home!
And, since I am still loving the gingham with cross-stitching, this is what is in my hoop now. I have been playing around with some vintage rose patterns, so we'll see what they become!
A couple weeks ago I came across some gorgeous vintage pink rose toweling, and I have been working on a couple tea towels! I have a few more sweet touches to add, and they will be in the shoppe early next week!

Wishing you a most lovely weekend!
