I've finally completed my partner's pillow for the Pillow Talk Swap 6. I've participated in a few block swaps before but this has been my first real swap. I've really enjoyed seeing what everyone has been creating for each other in the flickr group.
My partner did say that she likes bright ... so BRIGHT it is ....... I hope you like it partner!!
The front of the pillow is made with Sandi Henderson's Henna Garden prints and Kaffe Fassett shot cottons. I have straight line quilted it and it fits a 20 inch pillow form.
The pinwheels on the back are also Shot Cottons and Henna Garden and the main print is Asian Circles in yellow by Kaffe Fassett.
Here's one of the 3D pinwheels close up. They were really easy and fun to make!!
The colours are a little off as the sun was so bright, it's not quite so fluoro in reality.
This is the first time I've used a zip closure in a pillow and I must admit I was a little afraid at first, but it came together really well and I will definately try it again. I used this tutorial.
I hope you enjoy it partner ... if not, feel free to send it back. This bright rainbow pillow has sure been putting some sunshine into my days!!
