Summer Sunrise

I enjoy working with bias strips so much.  The slim curves they make just suit my minimalist style to a “T”.   For this pillow, my color choices were inspired by summer sunrises and Jacquie‘s lovely low volume quilt.  I quilted it in wavy echoes of the bias strips.

(I’m sorry this picture is not very good.  My camera is not working and I had to borrow my daughter’s.)

This pillow recently made its way to a new friend.  She has been incredibly supportive and encouraging to me and is just one of the nicest and most generous people I know.

    Are the strips appliqued on or pieced in?

    Your pillow is beautiful. Those curves and colors makes it look so peaceful. When you work with bias tape, do you always make your own?
