Laura Perin's Grandma's Flower Garden

Here is another great freebie from Laura Perin! (Scroll down to find it.) I finished this as a flat-fold and gave it to my mother. This is a lovely springtime design and quick and easy stitch. In case you are getting the idea that I like Laura Perin designs, I do! :) I also used one of her freebie designs for an ornament exchange last Christmas (more on that to come).

For those of you who have never tried the flatfold finish, go here--it is a no-stitch finishing technique. Thank you, Vonna, for sharing your expertise with us!
This was my first effort at a flatfold and despite the little area at the bottom where the cording meets-I am still happy with it. More importantly, so was my mother!

Have a great stitching day!
