This pillow was made by coloring a plain white square with crayons, placing a paper towel over it, and ironing it. Then I embroidered around it with the blanket stitch and embroidery floss. When I quilted the block, I quilted the background densely, but not the duck. It gives it an appliqued look. The duck pattern and pillow instructions are from the book "Beautiful Big Dogs".

The second photo shows how they look as traditional hand applique.

Those are both wonderful. I don't know which I like best.

They are both very nice! As for the "crayons" - you do mean Paintstiks right? Not Crayola kind... (just wanting to clarify).

Explosive blessings, abundance and inspiration to you all!
