Sew & Tell Friday
Today's finish is a gift for a special friend who turns 50 (! I'm next) on Sunday. I've known S. since we were in 2nd grade & we even graduated from college together. He has a wonderful brownstone in Chicago, decorated in a kind of art deco style. I am hoping this pillow will go.
The Asian fabrics are sashed with navy blue and should pick up the dark reds in his living room. My LQS has an entire queen-sized quilt in this style (sans the different size squares) and is so stunning. (Sorry for the shadowing photo--I had to get it in the mail that day!)
I pieced this with scraps and then quilted it onto a thin, fusible batting--turned out to be a great base for the cover--not too fluffy. The fusible helped it stay in place during quilting, too. I'll probably make him a second one--DH would like one, too. Must be manly enough :)
Best wishes for a Happy Easter/Passover this week. We are enjoying fabulous
