On a "real" project....

Yes people, I did FMQ on a REAL project today!  Like I said a few days ago, I decided to make a cushion cover in the Sparkle Punch style with a little bit of my Kate Spain "Joy" fabric.  I finished the top yesterday and figured that it was a perfect (ie. small!) project for trying some FMQ.  I decided on pebbles, and it went really well!  I'll admit it's not quite as easy as it looks like it should be, but the result is really fun and kind of puffy and pillow-y.  :)  Here's a peek...


And in other news, does anyone remember this pleated wristlet I made a while back???  It's now listed in my shop.

Great quilting for a pillow cover, and the pebbles contrast really nicely with the points/edges of the stars.

AWESOME about the fmq! I remember that great feeling the first time I did it for 'real' too! Congrats - you are ON your way! ;-)

The pebbly quilting looks wonderful on the Sparkle pillow top!

That looks really good! I've never attempted the pebbles. The thread usage scares me!

Svetlana said...

Beautiful! I'm working on a twin size that I chose to pebble quilt 50% of... really regretting that! haha
