I finished my first ever hand quilted project this week! I showed you a close up of the quilting earlier this week, but here is the full reveal.
This 16" square pillow cover was inspired by Amanda Jean's stunning pillow. When I saw it on the Crazy Mom Quilts blog, I just HAD to make one.
I pieced the top with a Bonnie and Camille mini charm pack (Marmalade I think!) and used a cream dotty print from their Modern Vintage collection for the sashing.
I hand quilted it using Aurifil 12 wt thread about 1/4" away from the seams.
The back is a simple envelope made with a Fig Tree & Co print.
I have to admit i didn't love the hand quilting. I didn't hate it, but I don't know that I would use this technique on a large quilt.
Now I need to get back to those baby quilts!
Linking up at the usual places again this week:
- Crazy Mom Quilts for Finish It Up Friday
- TGIFF over at Quilty Habit
- Needle and Thread Thursday over at My Quilt Infatuation
Have a great weekend!
