Small Victories!

It seems like I've been away from my machine for much too long!!!  I finally got in some sewing time and finished up this awesome pillow.  I had this extra block made for my Victory Garden quilt.  The perfect thing to check my quilting plan would work before I did it for real on my quilt.

I just stitched in the ditch on the flags...

and then used my favorite Angela Walters paisley in the sashing.  I was worried it would be to unbalanced but it did exactly what I wanted, made the flags pop!  No surprise I used a striped binding, my favorite Nicey Jane Slim Dandy.  I love how the Jen Paganelli print is just peeking out from the back:-)  The perfect addition to my living room!

  1. Hey, a victory is a victory! Sometimes simple quilting really is the best for a particular pattern. I think going with something simple for this pillow and your quilt is going to be perfect. Now if I could only I could get myself to do that now and then.

  2. Sweet! Are you ready to quilt the big quilt now? Good luck!

  3. It's really pretty, I should make one for my couch!

  4. Very pretty! Love all the fabrics you chose together!
