If you've been following the blog over the years, you know my story of how The Nebby Needle got started. If not . . . here it is: My daydream of becoming a cross-stitch designer became a reality at the 2010 Shepherd's Bush Retreat in Park City, UT after showing Barb and Alma (of Blackbird Designs) a piece of theirs that I "expanded". Alma asked if I designed and I said "no, I just change everybody else's". She told me I was ready...and The Nebby Needle was born in October of 2010!
That was the inspiration for this pillow and in tribute to Blackbird Designs, I used one of their fabric lines to finish this pillow. You may choose whatever fabrics you like and adjust your color choices for stitching to coordinate with your fabrics.
I hope this is clear . . . as this is only the second pillow I have finished this way. Like I said . . . I am a beginner and infrequent quilter having only pieced the edge of one pillow this way 5 years ago. If you have questions I will be happy to try to help . . . or if you have an experienced quilting friend . . . that might be better!
