My sewing time this week has mostly been spent finishing up these pillow tops. I sandwiched them with really thin batting & muslin backs, then proceeded to add some pretty basic straight line quilting on each. I really like how they turned out, and now I have to wait for the Reunion Sally's Skirt that I ordered to arrive, which I will use for finishing the backs of the pillow covers. Can't wait to get these on the couch!
Next up, the postage stamp quilt that I've been working on for quite a while. The patchwork portion has been done for a few months but I've been deliberating about borders and binding, here and here. All those bright flashy colours, and in the end I decided to go with this:
I feel almost like I chickened out with this choice of an off-white background and medium green binding (these aren't Kona solids, but greatly resemble 'Snow' and 'Grass'), but I'm not a super flashy person, the patchwork itself is fairly flashy to being with (the photo doesn't do it justice), and well, my gut was telling me to go neutral on the borders so that's what I'll do.
- "Fast Forward" quilt - needs to be basted, quilted and bound
- Sweetwater Pure strip quilt - needs narrow borders added to the top, then baste/quilt/bind
- pillow cases for our bed to match Swoon, using Hometown Preppy Plaid
- consider getting something together for Giveaway Day @ Sew Mama Sew
