|Quilted hanging for Mom|
Lastly I finished a book pillow for my grandgirl. I followed someone's link to a picture of this and thought that it would be simple to make. After this day, I have to rethink that idea. This was a simple project that took me all day. Yeppers, all day. First, I found this 10" block I wanted to put on the pocket. No instructions except measurements, but that ain't no thang. First to find the right fabric in my scraps. I didn't want to cut into stash if I didn't need to do so. Kaity's favorite colors right now are black and hot pink, and teal.
|Pocket pillow for Kaity|
I had a pillow insert but how large to make the cover? Went with my guess. Sandwiched the pocket and started quilting it. I chose teal thread on the black. It looked gorgeous! And then I hit the hot pink...not so pretty and I hesitated and the quilting went a bit wonky. Of course, the teal quilting shows up much stronger than on the black (which is great!). Oh well I can live with it. And then stuffed in the pillow and of course, the new cover is a bit too large. But it is squishy enough for now. I like how it turned out. And Kaity has two new books that will be in that pocket Christmas morning :)
Shopping all finished except one gift. Everything wrapped. Things going south on Christmas night are all packed. Now I have time to finish the two quilt tops I started last week.
