Blogger's Pillow Party
this way of doing circles, I tried this way by Anna Maria Horner. I would like to perfect the former way, but time is of the essence, and with my husband away and 2 small children, speed was essential. And this way of doing circles is fast! I loved it and will definitely make circles again. I'd like to embroider a bit around the circles in different colours, but for now it is done. Maybe next pillow. Also new to me is the quilting - I know there is a name for it - echo quilting? Anyway, I like how it adds substance and interest to the negative areas. And I usually use all patterned fabric, and this pillow has mostly solids and one pattern (Anna Maria Horner) and I chose my solids based on it. I love the colours!!! Thanks for looking, and I enjoyed the challenge!
