Finally, after two years, I finished a pillow for our bed! It goes with the quilt I made just before little guy was born... and I'll tell ya - I want four more pillows to go with this one!
I just used the grey and green scraps left over from the quilt plus others I've acquired like the green Echino cars - love those cars - and the Metro Living circles and tiles. But seriously, it all came out of my scrap bins. I seriously need to downsize my scraps, which, making more pillows would help the cause, to be sure!
For the quilting I used my free-motion foot and did spiraling squares in each of the four blocks. I wanted them to look hand drawn and not-quite-perfect, to off set the bold blocks and their angles.
The light grey thread is pretty unobtrusive, which is how I like quilting thread to look. I like to see the design of the quilting, not necessarily the color of the thread.
I dug into some more Ikea fabric for the backing, I call it the icing on the cake!
Finished size: 18"x18"
Machine bound with Katie Jump Rope in Green (I'm trying not to hoard it anymore!)
I've officially started sewing a King sized quilt as a custom order, so I may a bit distanced from blogging for a bit. Don't worry, I'll try to pop in every now and then to say hi.
Did you get to sew anything this weekend? Or did you soak up the sun and work on the garden or flower beds? I did a little of both!
