First is a pillow that sat unquilted for a long while. It is made with the scrap blocks from my parisville chevron quilt. I quilted it using an echo rainbow quilting pattern. I found it on the free motion quilting project website. If you haven't been there, please check it out. I piped it with more parisville and then backed it in a dark purple.
Again, true to my leave no scrap behind philosophy, I have another set of triangular scraps that will make a companion pillow one day.
I finished the HST pillow. It's huge, 24 inches square. I quilted the white parts with matching thread. I didn't want to make the colored triangles any busier. It makes me very happy.
I have another pillow just like it to recover. Hubs wants another one just like this, I said maybe. I would be more inclined to do so if he would square up all the HSTs...
I also finished the simpatico monsterz baby quilt. To follow the progress see here and here. I just love this soothing palette.
Note to the reader - that is not a dirty carpet, it is my concrete driveway. My hubs thought it was our floor and did not want you to think we don't vacuum. In other news, we don't sweep our driveway, but who does?
Quilted with some loopy FMQ action... zoom....
holding hands is the bestest
Here is the back. A monsterz panel flanked with a dot fabric. Still not sure what line it is. The selvedge only says that it came from fabrics.com but I bought it at my LQS. I bound it with a teal blue solid by Sandy Gervais for Moda. It is super silky soft and a bit darker than the monsterz teal. I used a zig-zag stitch to make it super baby friendly (you can see that a bit better a few photos down). This quilt can be washed a lot and will just get softer.
This is my favorite part of the back. A little orange monster is peaking out from the dots. Aaah so cute.
This quilt is all rolled up and ready to be shipped. That is the part that takes the most time for me, yeah driving to the post office. Good thing the baby is not due until December.
Back to reality tomorrow. Boo.
