Default Favorite Things - Embroidery

I just finished this quilt for my daughter's birthday on April 16th. I embroidered the center blocks using images I found on the net and that dissolvable stabilizer. Then I framed them in fabrics of her favorite colors. The edge was a scallop of those same colors. I did stitch in the ditch and fmq around the embroidery work. I started this in January, first time doing embroidery work in years. The batting is bamboo. I think she will enjoy it as a summer quilt. The picture was taken in the house with just light from a skylight and it was a cloudy day. Colors are brighter than they may appear here. Thanks for looking, this is my first picture post.

The borders were cut using two templates, one triangular and the other had a bit of a curve, I likened it to an ice cream cone. It was in a book I had that dealt strictly with borders. I have used it twice, for this and one with prairie points. Thanks for asking.
