The lure of another swap has sucked me in. I was going to ease off on the swaps, but I can't resist them.
I received my partner for this round of the Pillow talk swap, and I must say that this one is tough for me. Reason??? I was brainstorming to come up with an idea, and I am pretty much positive that the pillow I made is not something that my partner likes! .
I actually had trouble sleeping with ideas running through my head, and I woke up extra early last Saturday morning and quickly drew out my idea and went to work!
I actually put this pillow top together super fast, and before I knew it the top was done!
I really love it, and it has received some really positive feedback. But since I am not so sure that my partner is going to love it, I thought I should probably get started on another one ... She asked for bright, fun and cute, and I don't really think my first attempt met any of those requirements. So back to the drawing board I went.
I have really wanted to try a circle of flying geese, and I think this may be closer to my partners style.
I wasn't sure if I should do it with the greens all on one side, or mixing the green and the blue.
I ended up mixing them up, and then putting patchwork squares all around them.
I have started quilting the pillow top, and now I think I am going to add a little hand embroidery. What do you think .. blue, green or both??
