Well it's Wednesday again and this past few days have provided some very generous sewing time. I have been a busy girl. I got my Amy Butler quilt all bound and finished. I also made it a friend- a matching pillow with 4 extra blocks I had left over. I love making pillows and really love to have matching pillows with the quilts I make- so nice to have a set. I also spent HOURS quilting teeny tiny pebbles and some pretty feathers on a pillow for my mom's birthday which was on the 25th. It is a few days late, but hopefully worth the wait. To make this pillow I dug into my stash of designer samples from a friend who is an interior designer. There were some lovely silk fabrics in my box and I decided to make it a luxury pillow all done in silk. I did a simple patchwork design as to not take away from the complex quilting. My mom is always complaining that the first pillow I made her gets stolen by my dad- so I decided on this one to put her name right on it- MOM in the middle of my feather heart, so there would be no confusion as to whom it belonged. I really hope she loves it. I have some glamor shots of my AB quilt and pillow at the park and some MOM pillow shots as well, including one with a quarter to give you all a feel for the scale of the tiny pebbles- they were really fun to quilt but sooo time consuming. I spent around 7 hours quilting those pebbles- a labor of love for a woman who truly deserves something super special. I currently have no works in progress and three finishes... Let's see what next week brings!
