Almost done quilted pillows...............

1

These quilt little pillows to be are apart of my surprise. I used some of my scraps from my quilt top to make these cute little pillows. Of course they had to be quilted - I am really excited about them. I used a silver metallic thread for the quilting and I like how it turned out.

Who knew straight lines would be my new best friend?

It's a shame this back is going to be covered up - but hey, I have record of it now - so I can look at it whenever I want!

I wasn't sure I was going to like this one as much since it's not the straight lines, but it will be fun to have a nice variety when it's all said and done.

Such happy fabrics!

There you go, another back! I hope you all had a wonderful New Year's Day and I hope your 2012 will be a wonderful year! I am looking forward to what this new year will bring.

Take care!

Judi - I admire the designs in your quilting ... they are so different than a lot of quilting you see. My question is do you always mark reference points, or straight lines; are you drafting it on paper first? I would be really interested to see different areas in your process. I know you posted a little something about that recently, but as another longarmer, I am always interested in expanding my design! Thanks so much for the continued inspiration.
