Happy Friday people! We made it! Can you tell it's been a long week? So last night was our West Atlanta Modern Quilt Guild pillow swap and here's my pillow. I gauge how successful my swap projects are by how much I want to keep them and this was a raging success! As hard as it was to part with I knew these girls would bring their A games so I wanted to make something good. Plus it was really fun to see someone love it as much as I did.
Simple black yarn-dyed Essex linen envelope closure for the back.
A bunch of Anna Maria Horner scraps put to good use on the front. These seriously started as a pile if scraps that I absolutely loved but had no idea what I'd use for.
I used the quilt-as-you-go method and it was awesome - easy to start and stop as time allowed. Plus I loved the texture that the dense quilting gives. I'm now eyeing the remainder of the scraps for another pillow for myself!
Thanks to everyone who left a comment on the bag giveaway from Monday - the winner is Rebeckah who blogs at Handmade by Rebeckah, I'll be emailing you shortly for your address.
