I finished one of my pillowcovers! i wanted to recover my couch pillows for 2 reasons:
1 - and most important, so i could wash them when snotty noses get rubbed on them or milk spilled on them.
2 - so that they matched my quilt that i made for my mantel. so here is one of them. i sewed stripes together of fabric left over from my quilt, then quilted in an on-going square kind of pattern.
i'm really liking the free-form quilting that i've been doing. no planning ahead, just going with what looks good and making it work. it's been really fun!
and here is a closeup of the floral fabric that i used liberally in both pillow and quilt: it has to be seen close to appreciate. gorgeous! i was a little nervous cutting into it, but i'm glad that i found a good use for it!
i like the yellow-y color in it and the splashes of turquoise. pretty!
