This is a pillow I made for our clever son's lovely fiancée for Christmas. Yes, people, you read it right, fiancée!!! There is going to be a wedding! Back to the pillow though, this is is a pattern from a book I won at quilt guild. The pattern is for a quilt but I made a pillow. It is very stained glass looking. I used some scraps and some lovely linen/cotton blend for the sashing and the back.
And a little closer...
I was unsure what colour thread to use so I stuck a few tiny scraps on my test chunk of fabric plus batting. I decided to use a lovely Aurifil 30 wt... 2315 was the colour. It is a light yellow gold. Yum. I quilted it with lots of straight lines and quilted the bit on the back too. The pillow was a big one. About 22" square. It made me happy.
Love your pillow!ReplyDelete
