This is pillow number one:
Both pillows are 18" - a really nice size for my queen size bed. I quilted this one in the ditch around the black part and then traced the beautiful foliage in the fabric with my FMQ foot - something I had yet to try. I am very pleased with the results too.
And this is pillow number two:
I used the same yellow print so the pillows match but because the design is so different, they aren't too matchy-matchy. I quilted this one with my walking foot. I first quilted a wavy line from the bottom right corner to the top left and then echoed the line about 1/2" apart, using my walking foot as a guide. I really like the texture this quilting gives the pillow.
For the back of each pillow, I used a musical print I've had in my sewing room for a long time and closed each pillow with a nice yellow zipper.
Here are both pillows on my bed:
Along with Bronx, our huge doggie - which explains the comforter on the bed and the pillows full of dog hair! I should have removed Bronx's blanket from the bed before taking pictures, but he just looked so comfortable, I didn't have the heart to ask him to move. :-)
I will be linking this finish up at Quilt Matters where MR is hosting TGIFF this week and at Amanda Jean's for Finish It Up Friday.
Have a fabulous weekend!
