Pillow Talk Swap

I took the plunge at some encouragement from friends & joined in the newest round of the Pillow Talk swap! I was nervous at first, but when I got my partner information I realized she liked very much the same things I did so it would be easier to make her something. ;-)

This was my first fabric pull & idea. Low volumes with color plus's. After a bit of feedback I pulled the mustard & green & replaced them with brighter shades.
Here is it is all pieced & getting quilted. I really enjoyed the process of the hand quilting, even taking it along on our drive north one day.

My blocks ended up being a bit bigger than I had anticipated & so therefore I only got four on the pillow & that ended up being a large 22"! Good thing my partner liked big! lol

 I seriously love this pillow & am very happy to report that my partner loved it as well!! It looks great on her sofa & plays well with her other beauties.

I added this pretty AMH print for backing & sewed in an invisible zipper. I love the neatness they add.

Now the waiting! I am anxiously stalking my mailbox for the beauty that is coming to me! I really have no idea which one it could be so I'm thinking I'm in for a surprise!! ;-)
