Pillow finished

This pillow has been a long time in the works, but it is finally ready to put in the mail.  It is a commission and destined for a trip overseas.  The bleeding heart design is from Embroidery Library.  It is stitched out on silk and pieced into a raw silk, envelope style pillow.  I make the 'flange' by doing a standard quilting binding with the two sides - wrong sides together.  I probably should have made it much wider, but I am programed for a 2 inch binding strip and cut them before I even thought about what I was doing. 

It is nice to finally be able to be working on my projects again!
