|Unstuffed to show the quilting.|
It took some hard work, but I managed to pull out a Friday finish!
Last time I had shown this pillow I had been debating whether I should try to quilt this by machine. I love my hand quilting, but it is a serious time investment.
So when we were leaving for our vacation, I added it to the pile of projects I was bringing just in case. (It was a larger pile than was reasonable, but a girl has to take what time she can get!)
I had intended to work on some big projects while we were in the Outer Banks. But on day one I realized my mistake. There was no way that I wanted to sit under a blanket in that warm humid weather!
|Stuffed and looking like a proper pillow!|
So I pulled out this little guy and started sewing. And once I got going on it, there was no stopping me!
I used Gutermann black quilting thread, mostly because I only had a little bit left and I wanted to use it up. (Which I did, by the way. With nothing to spare!) My usual thread is also Gutermann, but it doesn't feel so waxy. I wonder what I had used the rest of the spool for.
It took me just under 8 hours to quilt this little 12 inch square. And then I wonder why I can't finish anything quickly!
|I promise my walls |
are not so chartreuse!
The back is a plain black envelope back.
Doesn't it look so inviting on this chair? Alas, I can't keep everything I make, so this one's up in my etsy store!
Linking up with Finish it up Friday.
