Ramona’s ~ Let’s Go Fly a Kite

Our great friend Ramona comes to sew with us every week, which I’m so grateful for.  She recently finished the front of this super cute kite bench pillow, pattern by Kimberbell Designs.  She added the cute hand embroidered words “Let’s Go Fly a Kite”, to the open space.  I love it!!!  If you haven’t heard about Kimberbell’s bench pillows, head on over to her website.  If you love machine embroidery...you’ve got to see the amazing things Kim and her team create.

I love quilting the freehand swirls to look like wind...it’s one of my most favorite textures.

In the larger kite I used Linda from The Quilted Pineapple’s 12” edge ruler.  Her rulers are my absolute favorites!!!  I also used a 3” circle ruler, made by a company that’s no longer in business, to quilt the petals in the flying geese.  Everything else was done freehand.  I also used my favorite Winline 8020 batting, and a 30 tex Perma Core A&E white thread.

Isn’t that Let’s Go Fly a Kite, such a great addition!!!  I love it! 

Hope you’re having a great summer.
