13 Mar Pillow Talk Swap 7
The Pillow Talk Swap 7 mailing date was yesterday. I mailed mine out before 10 am this morning – that isn’t too late is it? I hope my partner and swap mama will forgive me!
I had a lot of fun making this pillow. It is big – 20″ square! The last time I blogged about this pillow, I was planning to do a small version of my Urban Trail pattern but it just never felt quite right. So, since I have only ever done one project with diamonds before (6″ diamonds), I decided to make this star with 1″ finished diamonds. It went pretty well considering 🙂 The center isn’t anywhere near perfect, but the rest is pretty good. Some of the diamond corners don’t match up exactly, but they are the kind of off you only see if you really look for it, so I can live with that.
I included a sunglasses case and some chocolate in the package for my partner.
Now – see what I got! Lynn sent me this gorgeous pillow, some coasters that I really need (somehow, I never have enough), a nail file and these darling scissors! Doesn’t her pillow look great on my couch! The perfect springy touch to replace the deep red pillows the couch had before. I especially love the quilting on this pillow. It has some great spirals radiating out from the center of the pillow and curved lines connecting the corners of the outer triangles. I hope to be able to do free motion quilting like that one day!
Off now to try to restore some order to my sewing room! Two deadlines in a few days makes for quite a mess 🙂
