Finally some custom quilting!!!! :)

The hardest thing about quilting for me is knowing what pattern or design to stitch and where.  My friend Kristen gave me a simple hexagon pillow sham and asked me to quilt it.  I drew out a design and was so pleasantly surprised at how it turned out.  I'm still practicing my custom quilting and this I have to say is quite possibly my favorite thing I've quilted so far.

I used a curved ruler to create the flowers and then pebbled the rest.  Special thanks to a craftsy class I took by Kimmy Brunner who inspired me to try my rulers again.  (First time using a straight ruler I broke 3 needles and then broke my ruler in half!!!!).  I took my time and made some marks…my results:
