Rainbow Cartouche Embroidery Pillow
4.22.2014

My dear friend just celebrated a monumental birthday and I wanted to do something nice for her to let her know how much I love and appreciate her!  She is a giant fan of rainbows, rainbows of any kind!  So, I decided to embroider a pillow for her, using my Cartouche Embroidery Pattern.  You’ve seen my original version, but I wanted to do something different and show you the versatility with my pattern.  I chose one of the motifs and blew it up, so it would encompass the majority of the 16 x 16″ pillow dimension.

I embroidered using Roy G. Biv (which is the acronym for the sequence of colors used to make up a rainbow…Red.Orange.Green.Blue.Indigo.Violet.)  Look how pretty it is amongst our Quilter’s Candy solids!

I am so happy with the result, it’s so fun and colorful, just like my friend!

    So gorgeous, Jennie! I LOVE that pattern and I think I like it the best in rainbow. I still haven’t started my sunflower pillow, but I was given the Sulky embroidery transfer pens as a gift so I hope to give it a go soon.

    This is absolutely gorgeous, Jenni! How different it looks in rainbow like colors than on the rhapsody in red fabric.

    Hi Jocelynn, I’m so sorry to get back to you so late. Since I no longer work at CT I never get notifications of posts to my blogs their.
    Anyhow, I think this took me roughly a month. Fitting in time during the evenings after work and also time on the weekends.
