Almost there!

This is the first round of The Pillow Talk {Swap} that I've participated in, and it's been fun.  It's always so nerve-racking to me to make something for another person.  Even though my partner made an inspiration mosaic and left comments on discussion threads and other PTS9 projects, I never know if I'm getting it quite right.

The top is now pieced and quilted, and thanks to some great tutorials on how to use an overlock stitch (I didn't even know it, but I had an overlock foot amongst my accessories!)  the pillow top and back have been serged.  So thrilled to have learned how to do this!  I'm just a few hexies for the back and a zipper installation away from finishing this pillow.

Then it's on to my 4x5 Modern Quilt Bee blocks.  The fabric pulls for my beemates were done fairly early, but I agonized too long over block choice.  I thought I'd get around to at least making the test block with my own colors by now, and I could offer up any number of excuses why I haven't, but I won't.  There will be some crazy times ahead since we are moving this weekend and the deadline is a week from Saturday...

Linking up to WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced.

Have a great week!


  1. Good luck getting it done in time, and hope the move goes well!

  2. Hope the move went well! The pillow top is really pretty!


Thanks for stopping by. I'd love to hear your thoughts!
