I managed to get done with one of the two pillows that I planned on making a couple days ago.  I had gotten started on one of them a couple days ago and then really didn’t get back to it yesterday at all.  Today was such a dreary day – mist, rain, cold, cloudy – not a day for going outside much.  We do not do much of anything for a New Years Day celebration – and out daughter will be visiting tomorrow so today I spent reading and putting one of the pillows together out of my string scraps.

Side 1



Side 2 – I used the featherweight to put the strings together and to make the pillow – I went and ahead and machine quilted both of the sides in just a simple straight stitch.


I am going to try to get one more pillow made sometime this week – but it might be next week by time I get it finished.  I think my fingers are ready to get back to some quilting!

(I am compensated for any purchases made through my links.)

    The pillow looks bright and colorful. It will brigthen up your room. Nasty weather here too, cyclone Dumile is centered Northwest of us and we get rain and wind from its tail. At the moment it is quasi stationary, so we don’t know where it decides to go next. It’s at the Northern tip of Madagascar right now… Love the rain, it doesn’t make it too hot and we really need rain to fill up the reservoirs.

    The pillow adds colour to your dreary weather. A change to your usual quilt making. Our weather here is sunny but mild, a lovely change, but I guess the heat will come this month and February.

    The machine quilting is a nice touch .. I must remember to do that. Thanks for the idea.
