all the way home.....
where I quickly set to the binding on Friday night....
admiring it lots and lots;
She got to use it once on the bed, then the most beautiful sunny day in the middle of winter beckoned for some snaps. I gave her the camera to hold, and she shows you a stylist at work...err, kind of.
"I always see people take them on the fence, that'll look good"
"Great way to show half a quilt, der!"
"hmm, I have a chair, that kinda looks ok"
"a great shot of the corner, at least"
"Ok, ground it is!"
I love the back, especially the dark pink corduroy piece, the quilting show up so well on that fabric. Karen used a light pink cotton to quilt the all over design- I trust her, she wins important stuff!
I made this matching cushion as well, pattern from here, using my favourite pink chenille, and I machine quilted it myself, I'm a bit chuffed with it!
Her favourite fabric for the back- and I snuck in a invisible zip, now I know how to do them, I can't stop! (It's green as it's the only colour I had! In a stash of abut 80 zips! Crazy...)
This pillow is huge! I used 2X 20inch inserts, for the 'well stuffed' look.
All in all, a very happy mummy and daughter quilting team! Well, I sew, she receives them well....
