I’ve taken a few photos of the pillow case and quilt for the commission I’m working on. I do like the mix of fabrics and colours in this project. The quilt still needs binding but, hopefully, I’ll get that done over the weekend and hand-sew the back in front on the TV on saturday night.
The pillow case is quilted on the front which will gives it a lovely soft padded feel. I made a couple in this style for Islay a couple of years ago and they are still going strong.
I decided to quilt the quilt in random/freeform/squint (not sure what the technical word is!) lines to add a bit more interest, especially to the back which is quite plain. I tried out using blue and green thread in the bobbin to blend in more on the back but decided I liked off-white better – the colour doesn’t jump out and it gives the quilting a bit more definition (I think). As usual the quilt could do with a good iron – I did iron the pillow case before taking the photo so I’m feeling quite proud of myself. One out of two isn’t too bad….compared to normal, anywayl!
I do hope everyone has a fun day tomorrow, whatever you have planned. We have family coming over mid-morning and after lunch we plan to go out for a good long walk.
