It's the first Friday of the year, and I have a finish to share! Woo Hoo!
|20" pillow cover|
My pillow cover for the Angled class pillow swap is complete and in the mail. I followed a pattern by Katy Jones of I'm a Ginger Monkey in the Pillow Pop book.
The recipient likes greens and blues which I happen to have an abundance of in my stash. I chose favorite fabrics from Carolyn Friedlander, Alison Glass and Cotton+Steel to piece the plus/crosses. The backing is a simple envelope style flap.
|quilting on vacation|
I assembled most of the pillow top at home, then brought the remaining supplies with me on vacation to finish on my little Janome. I quilted straight lines using my walking foot with the only Aurifil thread (1148 in 50wt) I had with me which happened to be a perfect match.

Some extra goodies include a journal cover made using Rachel's tutorial (appropriate don't you think as she hosted the swap!), Wonder Clips, washi tape, Montana delicacies and my Peace quilt pattern.
I hope my partner likes her package. There are some amazing pillow covers posted on the group's Flickr page. Linking up with Crazy Mom Quilts.
Thanks for stopping by,
